FORT WORTH -- A $1 million donation from a Houston couple will help fund an exhibit of fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls slated to open in July at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Gary Loveless, founder and chief executive of Houston-based Square Mile Energy, and his wife, Stephanie, made the donation, officials announced in a news release Friday.

Good for Southwestern, although I think its a pity that the donors tie the money to an affirmation of biblical inerrancy. But it's their money and they can do what they like with it.

Background on the Scroll fragments at SBTS and the exhibition is here and links.
