He is the author of two best-selling books: "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told" and its 2012 sequel, "The Divine Secret: The Awesome and Untold Truth About Your Phenomenal Destiny."

An angel of God becomes a Ninja-style warrior who goes on a stabbing spree in the ancient city of Sodom in "The Bible" TV miniseries. The stabbing spree is not mentioned in the actual biblical account.

With Ninja angels in ancient Sodom, the highly publicized TV miniseries “The Bible,” which made its national debut Sunday night on the History Channel, does not always stick to Scripture, despite being produced by two famous Christians and having numerous biblical experts as well as Texas megapastor Joel Osteen advising on the project.

The program was brought to life by Roma Downey, former star of “Touched by an Angel,” and her husband, Mark Burnett, the renowned Hollywood producer of shows such as “The Voice,” “Survivor” and “The Apprentice.”

“Bringing the Bible to the screen came with a huge responsibility and one we took very seriously,” Downey said on “The O’Reilly Factor” last Thursday. “We had a great team of scholars and theologians helping us, making sure that we told these stories accurately and truthfully.”

“I’ve been a believer my whole life, and that was very, very important to us,” she added.

"Touched by an Angel" star Roma Downey portrays Jesus' mother Mary in a scene from "The Bible."

But when the program debuted, it was obvious there were glaring additions made to the TV show that are never mentioned in the Bible.

With the first episode focusing on the events in Genesis and Exodus, the first major non-biblical entry was the inclusion of an angel turning into a Ninja-style warrior wielding two swords and embarking on an expertly choreographed, slow-motion stabbing spree to slay the wicked men of Sodom, as can be seen in the following video clip:
