The Founder

photo-danDaniel Buttafuoco, founder of the Historical Bible Society, was forever transformed with the acquisition of his very first ancient Bible…the 1560 Geneva. In that moment, he committed to the task of preserving ancient Biblical texts & manuscripts for both study and reference.

Born in the 1950’s, Dan was brought up in a Christian home with a family filled with ministers and missionaries. His own path eventually led him to becoming one of the most respected Personal Injury attorneys in the country. To date, his firm has helped injured victims recover over $500 Million (with record settlements in the Tri-State area), was voted BEST LAWYER five years in a row and received the prestigious SUPER LAWYER certificate (awarded to the country’s top 5% attorneys).

With a family history that was rooted deeply in ministry and he, himself spending most of his life defending people in a court room, it seemed only natural for Dan to pursue a Masters Degree in Theology. His seminary professor and dear friend, inspired Dan to continue in his pursuit of helping others defend their faith and to truly understand why they believe, what they believe. To aid in this cause Dan founded several organizations and campaigns: Historical Bible Society, YCL Scholarship and The Five Reasons.

He is a regular guest on many local radio networks, (WMCA, STAR 99.1, WLIX, WBLS and 1010 WINS) as a legal authority, example of philanthropy and defender of the faith. Dan has toured the country with Historical Bible Society’s traveling museum of preserved ancient Biblical texts & manuscripts with the mission of making the Word of God as accessible as possible to the people of God and skeptic alike.
