More on the Museum of the Bible from Mosaic

MOSAIC MAGAZINE has now published two responses to its earlier review of the Museum of the Bible by Diane Muir Appelbaum, which I linked to here.

Biblical Illiteracy = Cultural Illiteracy. The Bible molded modern English and shaped American society and culture. Now, as attacks on the Museum of the Bible suggest, it has been cripplingly tossed aside (Edward Rothstein).

The Bible Has Long Deserved a Museum. Now it Finally Has One. Anyone expecting to find a politicized museum dedicated to hot-button “culture-war” issues needs to look elsewhere than the new Museum of the Bible (Peter Wehner).
