Women and the Bible, a special exhibit through January 31, 2019.  Women were an integral part of the early narrative of Scripture as well as Jesus’s life and ministry.  Throughout the history of the church women have read and studied the Scripture and shared its truths with others through numerous ways – as scribes, translators, missionaries, queens, mothers, and teachers.  This exhibit explores some of these aspects of “Women and the Bible.”


The God Who Speaks – Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 7 pm in the Dunham Theater, Morris Cultural Arts Center,  Houston Baptist University.

The documentary film The God Who Speaks traces the evidence of the Bible’s authority through interviews with some of the most respected apologists, scholars, and pastors in the evangelical world.  Answering common objections to biblical reliability and the Bible’s formation, the film challenges Christians to live as if God truly does speak through the Bible.  The trailer for the film can be seen here.                                              There will be a time for Q & A after the film, and the Dunham Bible Museum will be open before and after the film’s showing.
