Bible Museum Planned for Washington, D.C.

“A large-scale Bible museum will open in Washington, D.C., within four years,” reports Adelle M. Banks for Religion News Service. Funded by the wealthy Green family of Oklahoma, the museum will include a full-scale replica of “the chamber of London’s Westminster Abbey where the King James Version of the Bible was written,” writes Banks. While the museum’s founders state that their aim is not to necessarily to proselytize, Steven Green, a Southern Baptist and president of the arts and crafts chain, Hobby Lobby, says, “When we present the evidence, I think it’s going to be compelling for somebody to say, ‘Wow, this is a compelling book. I might want to consider what it has to say.’”
