Christian door?

I've lived with 6 panel doors for 28 years, and have a new house full of the style. I had never heard the nickname for these doors until today. According to a few blogs I found, the top represents a cross, while the bottom two raised panels represent an open Bible. Many call them Cross and Bible doors and they possibly could have originated from an old Quaker design.
