An Unauthorized Scholarly Tour of Washington, D.C.’s Museum of the Bible
Dr. Jill Hicks-Keeton Associate Professor, Religious Studies University of Oklahoma
The Museum of the Bible on Washington D.C.’s National Mall was founded and funded by the billionaire owners of Hobby Lobby. From the start, the museum has been controversial in the national press and in the field of Biblical Studies. Through a close examination of the museum’s exhibits and its collection of archaeological and historical objects, biblical scholar Jill Hicks-Keeton addresses the questions: Whose Bible is represented by the museum? Whose is not? And why it does it matter?
