'This Dangerous Book' release to coincide with Museum of the Bible opening
Logos Post News Desk - As Museum of the Bible prepars to open this fall, the founders and owners of the Hobby Lobby chain of stores have announced a new book deal to coincide with the grand opening this November.
This Dangerous Book: How the Bible Has Shaped Our World and Why It Still Matters Today, will release on November 7, 2017, to coincide with the grand opening of Museum of the Bible this fall.
As the founders and visionaries of the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C., the Greens have a unique perspective on the Bible’s journey—from its ancient beginnings, to its effect on the moral fiber of nations, to its transformative influence in individual hearts.
The Greens share the challenges they have faced in putting together a world-class museum on the most famous book ever written and why generations—in every time period and in every geographical location—have risked their lives to preserve it.
Exploring archeological finds about the Bible, medieval commentaries and modern translations, This Dangerous Book offers fascinating insight into the miracles and martyrdoms that have led to the Scriptures we read today. The Greens explore how cutting-edge technology gives new insight into the authenticity of the Bible, including the work of fifty scholars who recently uncovered hidden details about thirteen unpublished Dead Sea Scroll fragments. This Dangerous Book also looks at the link between the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, what we can learn from how the Bible was passed down to us, and why God’s Word is foundational to America’s past and crucial for its future.
Steve Green is President of Hobby Lobby, the largest privately owned arts and crafts retailer in the world. He and his wife Jackie are the founders and primary curators of The Museum of the Bible, the largest international museum in the world devoted solely to the presentation and the preservation of the Bible. This facility, located in the heart of Washington D.C., is opening its doors in November of 2017. Steve and Jackie provide unique insight and commentary into the Bible’s role in our public and personal life. Since 2009 they have been planning for the presentation of various archeological finds on the Bible and the world’s most impressive display of materials relating to Bible’s original writings, its preservation and its distribution around the globe.
