The plaintiffs in a federal lawsuit challenging the display of a Bible at the Manchester VA Medical Center have proposed replacing it with a Book of Faith containing writings and prayers from seven religious groups.

The 2019 lawsuit by two U.S. Air Force veterans against the hospital director said the Bible's inclusion on a table honoring missing veterans and POWs is a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

They said the table should be a memorial to all who have served. Government lawyers argued the lawsuit should be dismissed.

The plaintiffs point to a case at the F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming, where a decision was made to replace the Bible with a Book of Faith in 2018.
