 Remember “The Bible” miniseries that was broadcast on The History Channel last spring?

Well, it’s now up for a People’s Choice Award in the category of “Favorite TV Movie/Miniseries.”

Nearly 100 million people tuned in to see it, and it’s the top-selling miniseries in Blue-Ray history. But that’s not the greatest success producers Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey achieved through their cinematic telling of major biblical stories.

From the beginning, Mark and Roma were very open about their big hope for the miniseries: to “affect a new generation of viewers and draw them back to the Bible.”

The Burnetts were inundated with stories from viewers who were blessed and encouraged to dust off and read their Bibles as a result of watching the five-part series.

If you want to vote for “The Bible” as your favorite TV miniseries, you can do so by clicking here.  Voting ends on Oct. 31, and you can vote as many times as you’d like.
