by Karen Faulkner, Worthy News Correspondent
(Worthy News) – In honor of National Bible Week, the Museum of the Bible Christian organization will be giving away copies of its unique “Global Impact Bible” at David’s Tent on the Washington D.C National Mall this weekend, CBN reports. Focussing on the influence Scripture has had around the world, the Global Impact Bible is an English Standard Version containing within it “900 beautifully illustrated articles.”
The week of Thanksgiving has been declared National Bible Week by all US Presidents since President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1941. “The commemoration serves as a nationwide reminder that the Bible is important and life-changing,” CBN said.
In a statement about the Global Bible event, Museum of the Bible CEO Harry Hargrave explained: “It’s no coincidence to me that National Bible Week and the Thanksgiving holiday are intertwined. The Bible calls us in many ways to look outside ourselves, to serve others, and to be grateful for life’s blessings, which is why we’re thrilled to offer free Bibles to visitors to our nation’s capital.”
The Global Impact Bible event will take place from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November, CBN reports.
Visitors who have bought tickets to the Museum itself in Washington DC can also receive the special Bible.
