The Forbidden Book
Bible History Symposium
“The Forbidden Book” Bible History Symposium presented by GREATSITE.COM
and The Bible Museum, Inc., is held at our Arizona Showroom at least twice
a year, and draws hundreds of people from all over the country. Dr. Craig
Lampe, co-founder and International Director of the World Bible Society,
is our keynote speaker, and there is no charge to attend. Join us for two
days that will transform your mind and stir your heart, as you learn how
God has preserved His Word through the ages.
Our next Bible History Symposium has NOT yet been scheduled. Please be assured that the very same day that we know when it will be, is the same day that we will post that information. There is no need to call us on the phone to inquire... we promise the schedule will be posted here in this box just as soon as we set the dates.
We start on a Friday afternoon, and finish on Saturday afternoon. Sit
in on any or all of eight fascinating and entertaining one-hour topical
lectures on subjects not usually taught in churches or even Bible Colleges,
- How Ancient Old Testament Hebrew Influenced Modern English
- The Translation of the Greek New Testament into English
- The Apocrypha: Why All Bibles Printed Before 1885 had 80 Books
- The Preservation of God’s Word in Latin through the Dark Ages
- Morning Star of the Reformation: John Wycliffe
- Shining Lights of the Reformation: Martin Luther & William Tyndale
- The Pre-King James English Bible Versions of the 1500’s
- Faith of our Founding Fathers: The Bible in Colonial America
- Question and Answer Session
You will also have an opportunity to tour our Bookvault, and flip through
the pages of Bibles costing up to a half-million dollars each! Browse
through our bookshelves and explore the world’s largest private
collection of rare and antique Bibles. Such a hands-on experience would
not be permitted by any museum in the world… but we encourage visitors
to touch any of our Bibles. You may also take as many pictures as you
Located just a 20 minute drive from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International
Airport, and less than one mile from Interstate 10, our Bible History
Symposium is held in one of Arizona’s most luxurious hotels (which
we own). The lectures are held in the Grand Banquet Hall… and our
rare Bible Showroom, and our Bookvault, and your hotel suite (if you wish
to stay the evening with us), are all in the same building. For more pictures
of our beautiful hotel and our showroom, visit our Company
History & Showroom Page.
Each guest suite features an oversized whirlpool tub, large screen televisions,
and breathtaking views of the mountains and the world-class golf course
that surrounds the hotel. A beautiful center atrium with a pool, hot tub,
and exercise facility featuring a basketball court, treadmill, cycles,
and weights are all free for your use.
For your convenience, an in-house Avis Car Rental office is right across
the hallway by the 24-hour snack room and concierge desk. Many of our
guests will come out for the Symposium, then rent a car and take a drive
up to see the Grand Canyon. Others prefer to play the beautiful golf course
surrounding our hotel… and take advantage of the many options for
shopping and dining within less than one mile. Come be our guest for an
educational, inspiring, and relaxing weekend get-away… and bring

There’s no way to adequately thank you for all offered – it
was honestly too far above the bar of excellence to even describe (even
though I’ve been trying). All I can say is thank you. Thank you
for sharing your expertise. Thank you for the insight to truth. Thank
you for the spiritual challenges. Thank you for the incredible materials.
Thank you for the delicious dinner. Thank you for all I haven’t
mentioned but enjoyed and learned from.
May God richly bless each of you for all you do. You are the scholars
of our generation. Difference makers.
