Hobby Lobby family starting work on Bible Museum

Posted: Updated:
CEDARVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Hobby Lobby President Steve Green says construction is about to start on a Bible Museum just off the national Mall in Washington.

In remarks at Ohio's Cedarville University, Green said his family has spent years amassing a collection of 44,000 biblical artifacts that will be housed in the museum, which they hope to open in the fall of 2017.

He says it will be a state-of-the-art facility presenting the Bible's contents, history and impact on America and the world.

Green says the Bible had a significant role in America's founding, so "to be ignorant of the Bible is to be ignorant of the church and the state."
