Here’s a free e-book (pdf format*): The Bible in America. It’s by Steve Green, the CEO of Hobby Lobby. The book is an informative account of how the Bible has been venerated and used throughout American history – but especially in the beginning. I haven’t finished reading it, but have valued and enjoyed what I have read so far.
Downloading it will get you on Green’s mailing list for his latest project The Museum of the Bible, but’s that’s probably not all bad. It is being established in Washington D.C. and should make a great place for families, as well as Bible scholars, to visit. Green has become a major collector of ancient Bible manuscripts and his work is stimulating much interest.
I don’t know how long the free offer for this book will last. It currently sells for $20 in hardcover on Amazon.
*Since the book is in pdf format, you will be able to read it either with your e-book reader or, if you don’t have one, from your computer’s browser.
