If you ever hang out uptown on the weekends, you’ve seen the Christians walking around with signs or preaching the word of God on the Square. It’s their way of sharing their faith whether uptown visitors want to hear it or not.
A 75-year-old Raleigh man found a less confrontational way to share his faith. T.V. Oommen built a museum in his West Raleigh backyard. He opened the Bible Discoveries Museum in April.
It’s a 400-square-foot room, with two small, stained glass windows. It’s a testament to Oommen’s lifelong zeal for understanding biblical history and documenting its many stories.
“This is my passion,” said Oommen, a retired chemist. “Something to memorialize. Otherwise, who would know?”
