Nearly half of Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby's annual profits are donated based on Biblical principles and for the promotion and reading of the Bible, the news release said. These donations have allowed Hobby Lobby to acquire one of the world's largest private collections of Bibles and biblical artifacts, a collection that will be housed in a 50,000-square-foot Bible museum opening in Washington in the near future. Green has been at the forefront of this project since its beginning in 2009.

Previous Templeton Award honorees included Bonnie McElveen-Hunter, chairman of the American Red Cross, founder and president of Pace Communications and former ambassador to Finland; and Thomas Haggai, chairman of IGA Inc.

John M. Templeton Jr. is chairman of the National Bible Association and is also chairman of the Templeton Foundation.
