Kentucky Governor Declares 2017 As "Year of the Bible"
On Dec. 19, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed a Proclamation (full text) declaring 2017 to be the "Year of The Bible." A similar designation was given by the governor to 2016. The Proclamation notes the Bible Reading Marathon that begins on January 1 in which leaders in each Kentucky county will take 15 minute shifts reading through the entire Bible. The Lexington Herald-Leader last week reported on the governor's signing of the proclamation.
