Jill Hicks-Keeton and Cavan Concannon, Beyond Scandal, Toward Scripturalization: The Museum and the Bible and the Politics of Interpretation

Hicks-Keeton and Concannon read the controversial Museum of the Bible (Washington D.C.) as a Bible itself, tracing its provenance through twentieth-century white evangelical institution building and analyzing its production and publication as a wholly benevolent, affectively sticky, politically salient, and aspirationally imperialist scripture.
