LifeWay has partnered with Rick Warren to release a companion Bible study for the soon-to-be released Son of God movie produced by husband-and-wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
Son of God: The Life of Jesus in You is a DVD small group Bible study with video clips from the movie and custom videos from Pastor Warren explaining Jesus’ teachings and their impact on people’s lives. The study is available at LifeWay Stores and LifeWay.com/SonofGod.
“There’s nothing more important you can do with your life than spending time getting to know Jesus,” said Warren. “Through the Son of God study, people will receive practical teaching on the life of Jesus and its impact on individual lives and life purpose. Jesus’ teaching transforms from the inside out.”
Son of God is the second Bible-based production from Downey and Burnett. The first was The Bible, the history-making miniseries on the History Channel viewed by more than 100 million people last spring.
Burnett said bringing the full story of Jesus’ teaching and ministry to the big screen—the first time it’s been done by a major Hollywood studio in more than 50 years—is long overdue. “A story larger than life needs to be experienced larger than life,” he said.
“Now people can bring their family, friends and neighbors to experience together the incredible story of Jesus,” Downey said. “We pray this film will really spread the word about Jesus’ love and sacrifice for all of us.”
