  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.
