With help from the president of an American retailer, a number of public schools in the United States will soon offer Bible courses as an elective.

Steve Green of Hobby Lobby, launched this campaign because he's concerned America is in danger of a lack of knowledge of God's word.

The hope is to introduce Bible courses into thousands of schools nationwide by 2017.

The Mustang School District in Oklahoma City will be the first to include the course this fall.
