Family Behind Hobby Lobby Has New Project: Bible Museum

posted on July 17, 2014

In The New York Times, Alan Rappeport reports on the Green family–the owners of Hobby Lobby–and their quest to build a large museum dedicated to the Bible in Washington, D.C. The $800 million museum, which will open in 2017 in a half-block space near the National Mall, will include a variety of rare biblical artifacts. In a speech last year, Hobby Lobby President Steve Green said, “The nation is in danger because of its ignorance of what God has taught. There are lessons from the past that we  can learn from, the dangers of ignorance of this book. We need to know it. If we don’t know it, our future is going to be very scary.”
