Whether they’re smuggling stolen artifacts from war-torn countries, displaying forged antiquities, or simply using the guise of a museum to promote, affirm and elevate their own Evangelical Christian beliefs, it seems like there’s always something in the news about the Museum of the Bible – the $500-million philanthropic pet project funded by the Green family of Hobby Lobby fame.
As a result, Marisa and I thought it would be fun to have Dr. Jill Hicks Keeton – Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at OU – on The Lost Ogle Show to talk about her new book “The Museum of the Bible: A Critical Introduction.”
While drinking some cold Anthem beer, we discussed the book, what it’s like to teach religion in Oklahoma, what it’s like to be atheist in Oklahoma, and lots of other god stuff. You can follow Dr. Jill Hicks-Keeton on Twitter as @JillHicksKeeton. You can subscribe to The Lost Ogle Show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, I Heart, Stitcher, etc. Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.
