The Bible: The Book of All Books

The Bible continues to be the world’s most-read book, with a third of American adults saying they read the Bible at least once a week. From presidential inaugural ceremonies to bedside tables in hotels across the country, the Bible has been a fixture of American life, and not just in our country’s past.

The Bible has impacted civil rights and social justice, music and fashion—almost every aspect of life! While millions of people are reading the Bible, there remains a lack of biblical literacy and knowledge about the Bible’s impact.

Museum of the Bible opens in November 2017 to start a new conversation about this Book of all books—an immersive experience to people from all faiths, or no faith, and those who’ve never picked up a Bible.
