A live webcast on Saturday, March 2 will feature a behind-the-scenes look at the anticipated miniseries The Bible premiering the next day on The History Channel. According to The Christian Post, the 90-minute webcast will be hosted by Rick Warren, bestselling author and pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., and husband-and-wife producers of the series Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The simulcast will show an overview of the series with exclusive clips not yet seen anywhere else.

Warren said he is planning to incorporate the miniseries into his next five weekend messages and launch a five-week small group series for his group ministry. He encouraged other pastors to do the same.

“Every Sunday night for five weeks — from March 3rd through Easter Sunday on March 31st — millions of viewers will see the Bible come to life in a whole new way,” he wrote on his blog at Pastors.com. “You can make the most of this opportunity to reach out to the people in your community who will be watching … plan a sermon series, small group and outreach campaign and help viewers go deeper and learn even more about the Bible.”

“One way to build a bridge between God’s Word and the issues of our day is to tie a sermon series into some cultural event, something that has already caught the attention of many people,” Warren commented.

    Only God, Rick and his accountant know what Rick will make off this. I am growing weary of these “super stars” getting rich off ministry. Some day we all will give an account to the Lord for our life. I hope mine will be works, not profits. Before you say Rick takes no salary, please! Most pastors never accumulate a nickle above their salary, housing etc and retire with nothing. Rick has millions.

    Hopefully not a bible that mixes the muslim and christian faith?

    Critics like on this post remind me of Nehemiah’s critics like Sanballat. Leaders who step out in faith always have critics to stomp on their toes. Thank You Lord for great Christian leaders and for people that have a heart to tell your story in every way possible.

    I hope babycheeks has read already the account when Jesus told His disciples “Give what is due to him…” I’m not all for Mr. Warren but I have read some of his books and for me he deserves what he is getting. Not because a pastor is earning it means he is for profit. Jesus on his ministry on earth has turned a bread into thousands to feed His flocks/listeners, can Mr. Warren do that today? If he does then we can say we don’t need to make profit/money. Printing the bible itself has a cost.
