Hobby Lobby President Steve Green has reportedly sought the help of former President George W. Bush with the Green family’s Bible museum project.
At a conference to promote the $800 million museum, Green and Bush spoke about the Bible.
"I read the Bible every day during my presidency," Bush said. "The easiest time to be faithful is during a time of crisis. The hardest time for faith is when all is well. Faith informed my principles and decisions, but not my tactics. It would give me strength, but I didn't use my faith to make decisions. Freedom is a faith-informed principle.”
The Museum of the Bible will feature antique Bibles, manuscripts and numerous other religious artifacts reports Christian Today. It is expected to open in 2017.
Bush is supportive of the museum and its location near Capitol Hill.
"It's very important that the Museum of the Bible invites and makes people of all faiths feel comfortable. It will be an important part of our capital,” Bush said.
