Bible in America

The earliest English colonists to America brought with them the Geneva Bible as well as the Bishops Bible and Great Bible. However, by the 18th century, the King James Version had become the most read Bible in America
and continued to be favored until the end of the 20th century. Though most of the American Bibles on display are the King James Version, each has its own interesting story reflecting the Bible’s influence on American life and culture.

The large mural of "The Bible Throughout American History" displays historical figures in American history, from Christopher Columbus through the present day, along with specific Scriptures important to them.
