Started in 2009Green has amassed his collection in a short time, buying his first piece in November 2009. He said Thursday that he never anticipated collecting so many items but that he took advantage of opportunities to make multiple acquisitions. He has been scouting locations for a permanent museum to house the collection, most of which is now in a warehouse in Oklahoma City. Green said Thursday that he is looking now in Dallas, New York and Washington, D.C., for a permanent home. It likely will be “a few years down the road” before a site is selected and a museum built, Green said. “So in the meantime, what we have done, because we have a collection of Bibles that are itching to tell their story, we wanted to create a traveling exhibition that we can open up before our museum opens up,” Green said.
