"Filmed on location throughout the Holy Land, and utilizing modern scientific techniques and newfound archaeological discoveries.." Okay, well a FEW of these episodes are, but the rest aren't. The rest of the episodes are from a series made in the early 90s, and it shows. One episode for instance is on the 'mystery' of the Turin Shroud, which was pretty much put to rest as a fake relic from the Middle Ages a couple of decades ago (although if you see this episode as more of a history of people's beliefs about the Shroud, it's watchable).

This series isn't really about the mysteries of the Bible, it is really just a retelling of Bible stories, using stock images of paintings, overlaid with an often poorly-written and opinionated narrative, and extremely cheesy music. There is a smattering of opinion from talking heads, but these vary between actual experts and academics, to ultra-religious nutters and campaigners, and authors of nutty books.

Being used to the BBC style of documentaries, where they at least attempt to be fair and openminded, I was quite surprised by the episode on Angels, which basically implies that the resurgence of belief in them is silly nonsense, and not Biblical enough. Not something you expect from a documentary. Basically the final word on the topic is from some 'expert' or another, saying this new popularity of angels 'scares' him because it is pure 'anti-rationalism'. To me, this seems to imply that the documentary makers believe in the popular anti-theist argument that faith is a 'slippery slope' to a complete loss of common sense, and to general idiocy. Or maybe they think it's just a belief in angels that will lead to this.

"Upheld as the literal word of God by some and the ultimate testament of mankind's spirituality by others, the Bible has galvanized western history for over 2,000 years. For ages, it has provided a rich treasury of tradition, ritual, and mystery that has engaged scholars as much as it has guided the fathful.
