Mosaic reviews the Museum of the Bible

MUSEUM REVIEW: Who's Afraid of the Museum of the Bible? Critics accuse it of threatening the separation of church and state; in truth, Washington’s new museum makes an invaluable contribution to American (and Jewish) cultural literacy (Diana Muir Appelbaum, Mosaic Magazine). As you might guess from the headings, Ms. Appelbaum liked the Museum of the Bible. Much of the review consists of responses to other reviews and to Candida Moss's and Joel Baden's book, Bible Nation.
