Q: What are some of the YouVersion tools that people can use to connect with the series?

A: Very soon we will have a brand-new major feature in YouVersion that will incorporate video content from “The Bible” series as well as some other video content providers, in addition, like “The Jesus Film” and some other properties. That video content will enable you to watch video footage of different visualizations of Scripture and then read the associated passages that apply to what you just watched. You'll be able to see scenes and footage from “The Bible” series.

Q: How is YouVersion doing?

A: It's doing well. We had about 82 million devices that have installed the Bible app, and it's still growing rapidly. We are excited this year because we feel it's going to be a tremendous year for growth.

Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?

A: The quote that I like to use is I believe that “The Bible” series that Mark and Roma have put together is the greatest visualization of the Bible that has happened in my lifetime.

I feel like in terms of a comprehensive view of the story of the Bible, the larger story, I really feel like it's the greatest thing that I've seen that makes an effort to bring the Bible to life.

Mark has visited Oklahoma City for the first time as part of this relationship with us and really enjoyed his visit. I know that he and Roma are planning on coming back, so it's been exciting to bring a little more of Hollywood out here to Oklahoma City to experience our great town.
