Sherman Oaks, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–May 2, 2006–The WatchWORD Bible, The New Testament on DVD, arrives today as a Christian response to the theatrical release of The DaVinci Code. The new 10-disc DVD boxed set allows viewers to “See the Word Come Alive” in the world’s first video book of the New Testament.
“The DaVinci Code will stir lots of conversation about the Bible, Jesus Christ, and the history of the Christian Church,” said George Barna. “The WatchWORD Bible provides answers to many of those questions in the same movie-like format that raised them in the first place.”
Available exclusively through Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI), Promise Keepers and other Christian Ministries, it can be ordered online at www.seetheword.com and at 800-444-1988. The WatchWORD Bible carries an MSRP of $49.99.
“Using the WatchWORD Bible either as an alternative viewing experience or as a complementary resource will help many people reach their own decisions about what is fact and what is fiction regarding some of the most important religious questions of our time,” said Barna. George Barna, the founder of The Barna Group, may be the most quoted living Christian today. He has written 38 books on contemporary Christian issues, including the latest bestseller, Revolution.
