Bible Nation tells the riveting account of how the billionaire Green family -- owners of the Hobby Lobby craft chain -- are spending hundreds of millions of dollars in pursuit of changing America to fit their conception of America as a "Christian Nation."
The Greens came to national attention in 2014 after suing the federal government over their religious objections to provisions of the Affordable Care Act related to birth control. What is less widely known is that the Greens are now America's biggest financial supporters of Christian causes and they are spending hundreds of millions of dollars in an ambitious effort to increase the Bible's influence on American society. In Bible Nation, Candida Moss and Joel Baden provide the first in-depth investigative account of the Greens' sweeping Bible projects.
Bible Nation tells the story of the Greens' rapid acquisition of an unparalleled collection of biblical antiquities; their creation of a closely controlled group of scholars to study and promote their collection; their efforts to place a Bible curriculum in public schools; and their construction of a $500 million Museum of the Bible near the National Mall in Washington, D.C. This book also reveals how these seemingly disparate initiatives promote a very particular set of beliefs about the Bible and raise serious ethical questions about the trade in biblical antiquities, the integrity of academic research, and more.
