Giveaway - The Bible on Blu-ray!!


What a fantastic giveaway to celebrate Easter!


The Greatest Stories Ever Told
Inspired by The Bible
Coming to Blu-ray, DVD & DHD April 2nd

"The Bible is one of the greatest stories ever told, and would be a great addition to any home entertainment library. Here, we’ll highlight other notable TV shows and films that re-tell epic tales and history.

From Executive Producers Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor) and Roma Downey (Touched by an Angel) comes The Bible — an epic 10-hour miniseries, coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD April 2 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Breathtaking in scope and scale, THE BIBLE features powerful performances, exotic locales and dazzling visual effects that breathe spectacular life into the dramatic tales of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation.


A People’s History of the United States
Howard Zin’s powerful and controversial look tips American history around to portray the social turmoil behind the ‘march of progress’. A People’s History of the United States tells America’s story from the view of its women, the working poor, Native Americans, African-Americans and immigrants. The story covers the arrival of Christopher Columbus through President Clinton and gives a detailed analysis of important US events through history.

Malcolm X
In the 1992 Spike Lee directed, Denzel Washington in the lead role heads Malcolm X. Malcom X is a biopic of the controversial and influential Black Nationalist leader. The film tells the story of the life of the human rights activist from his birth in 1925 until his assassination in 1965.

Gandhi
Ben Kingsley took on the role of Mahatma Gandhi in the 1982 Richard Attenborough directed biopic of one of the most famous men and stories in history. The film tells the story of the lawyer who became known for using his philosophy of non-violent protest to become the leader of the Indian revolts against the British rule.

Passion of the Christ
Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ focuses on the last twelve hours of the life of Jesus including the betrayal and the crucifixion. The film begins in the Garden of Gethsemane as Jesus is arrested, tried and sentenced to death by crucifixion. The depiction of the Biblical tale went on to be nominated for three Academy Awards®.

America: The Story of the US
This six-part mini series from 2010 presented the history of America over the past 400 years. The series examined how humans harnessed technology to advance their progress as part of the human race, taking in events spanning from the English settlement in Jamestown in 1607 through to the present day. With narration by Liev Schreiber, events are recreated by a combination of actors and CGI technology.

The Prince of Egypt
This film from 1998 tells the story of Moses, a Hebrew who becomes an Egyptian Prince, flees Egypt, and returns to free the Hebrew people. With an all-star cast consisting of Val Kilmer, Danny Glover and Ralph Fiennes, this Biblical tale won an Academy Award® for Best Song for the Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston duet ‘When You Believe’."

I do not have cable so was unable to watch the Bible Mini-Series when it was airing on the History Channel! However, I managed to track down a dodgy download of it on YouTube (how that was legal, not sure)! And I must say,I am LOVING this series! IT IS SO VERY POWERFUL!

I would love to own a copy of it (legally) to be able to share it with family and friends! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
