NBC’s “Book of Daniel” to air Jan. 6

The Book of Daniel, a new television series, debuts Friday, January 6 on NBC. The main character is an Episcopal priest played by Aidan Quinn. The Rev. Daniel Webster has an addiction to painkillers, a fractious family and a deep, if sometimes difficult, relationship with a Jesus who actually shows up to chat from time to time. Will the new show–scheduled for eight episodes this season–capture the reality of contemporary Episcopal life? Will it be good for the Church or bad? The Episcopal Diocese of Washington offers this blog as a place to discuss these and other issues raised by the show. We welcome you to this blog.
