The Museum of the Bible has attracted much scrutiny since it opened in 2017. In this episode, Dr. Jill Hicks-Keeton joins us to discuss the museum’s evangelical endeavors. We also explore why the museum has been embroiled in so many scandals, what role the Green family of Hobby Lobby plays in shaping the museum’s evangelical mission, and what the Museum of the Bible’s prominence in the nation’s capital reveals about conservative Christianity in America today.
Supplemental reading: “On Good Government & Good Girls: How the Museum of the Bible's Founding Family Turned Themselves into Bible Experts” and “The ‘Slave Bible’ is Not What You Think.” Find both at therevealer.org.
