The Bible Series from a writer’s perspective

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Now that The Bible Series is over, we can explore the question: was it worth it? If you watched all ten hours of the miniseries, you have probably formed your own opinion. For what it’s worth, here is mine, the perspective of a writer. I know that some were put off by the fact that… Read More »

The Bible – Week Five: From Darkness to Light

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Reflection There was something about watching the very first Easter unfold on my television set this year that made this Easter a little more special.  Even though I wasn’t looking forward to seeing the blood and violence present in the crucifixion of Christ, I also knew that if not for that blood, nothing else would… Read More »

The Bible – Week Four: From Religion to Relationship

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Reflection There was an irony to this week that I hadn’t really noticed in the Bible until now. But it’s there. Hiding in the Scriptures. Hiding in the lives of some people in the Bible. Hiding in my own life, and maybe even in yours as well. It’s the irony of distraction. Jesus - Image source:… Read More »

The Bible – Week Three: From Victim to Victor

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Reflection This week was an exciting one. The central figure of the entire Bible – Jesus – finally came onto the scene!  I especially enjoyed watching the nativity scenes. Since I’ve been involved in more Christmas pageants than I can count, I was interested to see if their interpretation of the manger and all that… Read More »

The Bible – Week Two: From Slavery to Freedom

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Reflection The era of the Judges and the Kings has always been one of my favorite time periods of the Bible. Though it seems to contradict my “girly” nature, I have to admit, I LOVE reading the battle scenes! I love the stories of heroes. Of battle strategies. Of victories. So much action and so… Read More »

The Bible – Week One: From Death to Life

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Reflection I don’t like watching violence on TV. I shield my eyes at even the slightest glimpse of blood or gore. So, I have to admit, watching the first episode of The Bible was a bit difficult for me because, if you haven’t noticed… The Bible is violent! Abraham and Isaac - Image source: http://www.facebook.com/BibleSeries There’s… Read More »

Author: Emily E. Ryan

Have you ever felt ugly before? I have. When I got my first pimple in junior high, I felt ugly. When I got braces as a freshman, I felt ugly. When I was 9+ months pregnant and swollen like a watermelon, I felt ugly. And every time I go outside and my hair frizzes in… Read More »
