Shocked that NBC dropped the show
We were looking forward to the debut of "The Book of Daniel" before it even came out. As a Lutheran pastor, I thought the idea to portray the everyday life of an Episcopal priest's family sounded very interesting. After seeing the first episode our family (a daughter  and and son ) made Friday evening the time to watch "The Book of Daniel" together. Even though there were some overdrawn plots, and maybe too much going on at the same time, we greatly enjoyed watching the show because to a pastor's family so much of it rang true. It was even refreshing to see Jesus enter the life of Fr. Daniel Webster. It showed how Jesus is present in everyday life, sometimes supportive and understanding, sometimes uncovering the vices. I was absolutely stunned when we turned on the television last night expecting to see the show when we found out that NBC abruptly pulled it off the air after only four episodes. I wish that there will be a place to see the rest of the show. I am upset that the opinion of the religious right has the power to take away a show greatly enjoyed by other Christian people of faith that happen to not be as closed as they are. It is interesting that the larger political debate and divide has now even effected a television show like this one.
