BYUtv's "Fires of Faith" is getting national recognition.

The New York Times Arts Beat discussed the three-part series on the coming forth of the King James Bible.

Titled "Channel Surfing: 'Fires of Faith' on BYUtv," the article explained that the series "mixes historical re-creations with well-chosen commentary by academics and religious scholars representing many faiths." It also includes a recap of part two, subtitled "Martyrs for a Book," looking at William Tyndale's influence.

Part three will air Sunday, Oct. 30, at 6 and 9 p.m. Mountain. The previous two episodes can be viewed on the BYUtv website.
