CAROL STREAM, Ill., Nov. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Long a Roman Catholic icon, Mary, mother of Jesus, is sparking new interest among Protestant Christians. With the release of the upcoming movie, The Nativity Story (Dec. 1), magazine & internet publisher Christianity Today International has produced new articles and resources about Mary and the movie.


Media interviews are now being scheduled for the following editors:


David Neff, editor of Christianity Today magazine, praises the movie for its remarkable portrayal of Joseph, who is normally portrayed as a background character in Bible-based films, but is brought to the foreground as co-star in this one. See:  Stepping Out of the Wings


Mark Moring, editor of Christianity Today Movies, was on the set in Italy during production where he interviewed producers & stars of the movie. See: http://ChristianityToday.com/go/NativityStory


"The huge box-office success of The Passion of The Christ gave 'permission' to Hollywood's big studios to make films that focus on stories from the Bible," said Moring. "New Line Cinema is the first major player to act on this new opportunity, delivering The Nativity Story just in time for Christmas."


Peter Chattaway, an expert on Bible films, has seen the movie three times and will be writing the official review for CT Movies, to post at the website on December 1. See: http://ChristianityToday.com/Movies


Interviews with the senior editor of Christian History & Biography Chris Armstrong offer the most diverse insight into the life of the Mother of Jesus. The Summer 2004 issue offered seven different timeless angles on Mary. See: http://ChristianityToday.com/go/MaryHistory


Ed Gilbreath, editor of Today's Christian, is available for interviews about the cover story for his magazine's current November/December issue, "Holy Family Man," along with articles on Christmas reflection from this issue. These features will be available in December at: http://Todays-Christian.com
