New Bible exhibit 'innovative, family-friendly'

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (BP) -- At the recent opening of the Passages Bible exhibition in Charlotte, N.C., Steve Green was described as "a man of no compromise who sticks to God's Word and does everything at a level of excellence." Green is the president of Hobby Lobby and owner of the world's largest private collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts.

Passages showcases more than 400 items of great historical and biblical significance from the Green Collection. The full collection contains more than 40,000 items. The exhibit opened in Charlotte in September and continues daily through the end of February.

The 30,000-square-foot Passages exhibition provides a captivating experience that tells the dramatic story of the most debated, most banned, most read, best-selling book of all time.

The exhibit's website describes Passages as an "innovative, interactive, family-friendly exhibit that showcases both the Old and New Testaments -- arguably the world's most significant pieces of literature -- through a non-sectarian, scholarly approach that makes the history, scholarship and impact of the Bible on virtually every facet of society accessible to everyone."
