NASHVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 12/12/13 -- Word Entertainment is partnering with producer and actress Roma Downey ("Touched by an Angel," "The Bible," "Son of God") and producer Mark Burnett ("The Voice," "Survivor," "The Apprentice," "Shark Tank," "The Bible," "Son of God") for "The Bible: Son of God Tour 2014." The two-hour live event will bring the epic miniseries "The Bible" and the upcoming 20th Century Fox feature film "Son of God" to life in sight and sound with immersive video and stunning visual effects paired with music by award-winning musical artists Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets, Natalie Grant, Chris August, Meredith Andrews and Jason Gray.

Tickets for select dates are on sale now at www.thebibletourexperience.com.
"We have been working with Word and Rod Riley [President & CEO, Word Entertainment] since the beginning of 'The Bible' series and 'Son of God' and were fortunate that they released 'Inspired By' albums," said Burnett. "We came to Nashville and got to know the artists and felt the images with the music worked so well together. When the idea of a tour came about, which would take the incredible visuals and film footage and allow them to be on screens with incredible live Christian music, we immediately realized the vision and signed on. We knew it would be an incredible experience for people."
"What we are hoping to provide here is a great emotional experience for people," added Downey. "We hope that people will come with their friends and family and just absorb this stunning combination of music and images and have a few hours to feel as though they'd been immersed in a pool of love."
