The Book, a new feature program from Museum of the Bible, launched this week on a record number of stations, reaching a million listeners in 42 states, plus the District of Columbia and Guam.
The new series is running on more than 300 outlets, and the number is expected to continue to grow.
“It is our desire that The Book will be a significant extension of our mission to invite all people to engage with the Bible,” remarked Dr. Cary Summers, President of Museum of the Bible. “We hope listeners will be motivated to read it anew, and to begin a life-long passion for the history and contents of this book.”
Launched on Monday, October 5, the new minute-long feature uses contemporary and historic dramatization to draw listeners into the Bible narrative – whether it’s from Apollo 14 and the first Bible on the surface of the moon or if it’s discovering Dead Sea Scrolls in the caves of Qum’ran. Like the Museum of the Bible currently under construction in Washington, DC, The Book presents an opportunity for all people to fully engage with the Bible.
In late 2017, Museum of the Bible will open its 430,000-square-foot nonprofit museum located two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the Capitol. Museum of the Bible will also present a 20,000-square-foot museum at the Exposition of Proclaim 16, the International Christian Media Convention, in Nashville, TN. The interactive exhibit will chronicle the remarkable history of the Bible, from its transmission and translation to its impact and controversies. Several hundred priceless artifacts are used to tell the stories against the backdrop of immersive environments.
Proclaim 16 will take place February 23-26, 2016, and the Exposition will be open to the public (free with registration) February 24-26. The NRB Digital Media Summit, a pre-Convention event, will be held on February 22, 2016.
