LOS ANGELES, (christiansunite.com) -- Internationally renowned actor Jim Caviezel, whose portrayal of Jesus in The Passion of the Christ has impacted millions of viewers around the world, will make a special guest appearance at Trinity Broadcasting Network's Holy Land Experience August 29th.
Caviezel, who will be interviewed by TBN's Chief of Staff Paul Crouch Jr. for an upcoming TBN special, is appearing at HLE in conjunction with the September release of The Word of Promise, a dramatic audio Bible produced by Christian publisher Thomas Nelson. Caviezel provides the voice of Jesus on the New Testament portion of the project.
In addition, the 79-CD, 90-plus hour project features portrayals of other key Bible figures by some of Hollywood's biggest stars, including Richard Dreyfuss, Lou Gossett, Jr., Stacy Keach, John Rhys- Davies, Gary Sinise, Marisa Tomei, Jon Voight, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, John Schneider, Luke Perry, John Heard, Harry Hamlin, Lou Diamond Phillips, Joan Allen, Jason Alexander, and many, many others.
"We're excited to have Mr. Caviezel joining us here at Holy Land Experience, to talk about this impacting Bible project, and about his unforgettable performance in The Passion of the Christ," said Crouch. "We've had Jim as a guest before at TBN, and his humility and genuine character always shine through."
Caviezel said the issue of truth was a key consideration in his decision to portray Jesus in The Passion as well as in The Word of Promise audio Bible. "Throughout my professional life, I have always been drawn to truth when selecting projects," he said. "In the Scripture I find truth that has long been a source of strength and constant inspiration."
He added that he hopes people will be transformed by the truth they encounter as they listen to The Word of Promise Bible. "People change so much when they know that they're loved," he said. "And I want them to know that they're loved when they hear this."
Visitors to Holy Land Experience are invited to join Jim Caviezel and Paul Crouch Jr. at the Temple Plaza on Saturday, August 29th, at 11:00 a.m. For more information on Holy Land Experience, including admission prices and a full calendar of features and events, log on to www.holylandexperience.com.
