Why “The Bible” Mini-Series Is So Popular

[dc]T[/dc]his past Sunday night, I watched the first installment of “The Bible” on the History Channel. As a Christian, I was very interested in how the stories would be portrayed.

I couldn’t watch the series live, because I was in church when it began. I really didn’t plan to watch it that night. Then, I checked Facebook and Twitter.

People were going crazy over it — in a good way. They were tagging @bibleseries on Twitter and posting play-by-play commentary on Facebook. As a result, I was compelled to start the playback on the DVR. Immediately, I was hooked.

Since then, we have learned the first installment of this mini-series was the most-wacthed show in its time slot. There are three reasons why I believe this series is so popular.
