Owen Wilson will probably not attend The King James Bible Exhibition on display now through October at the Museum of Biblical Art, 7500 Park Lane. However, if we play a quick game of six degrees of separation, it's easy to connect the two: Mr. Wilson starred in the film Behind Enemy Lines (2001), which is based on the life of pilot Scott O'Grady, who received his degree in biblical studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, which is where Charles Ryrie was a professor and dean. And The King James Bible Exhibition just so happens to feature Dr. Ryrie's Bible collection, which includes a page from the Gutenberg Bible, a first edition of the King James Bible, early Greek manuscripts of the New Testament and more. It really is a small world after all! Admission is $12, $10 for students and seniors. For museum hours and more information call 214-368-4622 or visit biblicalarts.org.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 9. Continues through Oct. 31, 2011
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
