#1 New York Times bestselling author Pastor Rick Warren to Release Unique DVD based Small Group  Study with the Upcoming Major Motion Picture ‘Son of God’ from Twentieth Century Fox
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (February 12th, 2014) B&H Publishing Group is pleased to announce that in anticipation of the Feb. 28 movie release of Son of God, Pastor Rick Warren will release small-group Bible study resources to help individuals and churches delve more deeply into the teachings of Jesus depicted in the film.
Son of God: The Life of Jesus in You is a DVD small-group Bible study featuring New York Times best-selling author Pastor Rick Warren, who explains how you can find your purpose in studying the life of Jesus. The study will be available to all retailers on February 15th addition, it will be available soon as an iBook and with other ebook retailers.
Son of God, a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox, is a LightWorkers Media production from Emmy award-winning producer Mark Burnett and his wife, Roma Downey, who also plays Mother Mary in the film.
Warren says he’s honored to be helping audiences get even more out of the movie experience through the study, calling Son of God “the best movie I’ve seen on the life of Jesus in years.”
“There’s nothing more important you can do with your life than spending time getting to know Jesus,” he explains. “Jesus’ teaching will transform you from the inside out, so I developed a curriculum and DVD-based study to better understand key scenes and valuable teaching moments from the movie and connect the teaching of Jesus to your life’s purpose.”
The Bible study features six sessions with video clips from Son of God and two and a half hours of custom videos from Warren explaining Jesus’ teachings and their impact on people’s lives.
B&H President Selma Wilson said the Lifeway team is “blessed” to be collaborating with Warren on the project. “This is about the heart of Jesus and how he will transform each and every one of us,” she says.
