The Most Dangerous Book on Your Shelf by Thinke.org
I’m thrilled to share another guest post from Steve Green, and his wife Jackie. Steve is the President of Hobby Lobby, and the chairman of The Museum of the Bible, which just opened in Washington DC.

I’ve read several books by Steve, and they are both on my personal favorite book list.

Another chance to strive for what might not have been accomplished last year. A new beginning.
