“The Art And History of the Bible” brought to us by a private collector, Stormy Castleberry, started collecting whole copies and fragments of historic Bibles about 10 years ago. His interest in them extends to collecting replicas, and searching for historic volumes. Over time, Mr. Castleberry has amassed such a personal collection that he has been working hard to put together a full exhibit, which will be on display for 8 weeks here at the Henning Cultural Center.
