(RNS) A large-scale Bible museum will open in Washington, D.C., within four years, say planners who have been touring the world with portions of their collection. By Adelle M. Banks.


  1. There already is a museum of the Bible in NYC: the Museum of Biblical Art. Except unlike the proselytizing “museum” featured in this story, MOBIA attempts to present an objective view of the Bible as a piece of human history. This is notwithstanding the fact that the museum started as a gallery within the offices of the American Bible Society, a Christian organization.

  2. Although the Museum of Biblical Art is great, it is not primarily a collection of Bibles. Rather, it displays art. This new museum will display Mr. Green’s impressive collection of Bibles. I for one will welcome it.
