The Bible is an AMAZING book!
THE BIBLE is a unique
book. One famous writer called it, "the strangest publishing project of all
time". And he said, "it was responsible to oversee 40 independent
authors, representing 20 occupations, living in 10 countries during a 1,500 year
span, working in three languages, with a cast of 2,930 characters in 1,551
The Biblical authors included kings, statesmen, fishermen, priests, seers, a physician, a tax collector, a farmer, a general and a tent-making rabbi. Four books record the life of a carpenter-turned-teacher, whom THE BIBLE declares to be God in human form.
It is God's inspired revelation of the origin and destiny of all things, written in the most simple human language possible so that the most unlearned can understand and obey its teachings.
It is self-interpreting and covers every subject of human knowledge and need now and forever. As a literary composition, THE BIBLE is the most remarkable book ever made. It is a divine library of 66 books, some of considerable size and others no larger than a tract. These books include various forms of literature - history, biography, poetry, proverbial sayings, hymns, letters, directions for elaborate ritualistic worship, laws, parables, riddles, allegories, prophecy, drama, and others. They embrace all manner of literary styles in human expression.
It is the book that reveals the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts bindings, its histories true, and its decisions immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy.
THE BIBLE contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christian's charter. Here heaven is opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Jesus Christ is its grand subject, our good is its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your feet in righteousness and true holiness.
Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully, meditatively, searchingly, devotionally, and study it constantly, perseveringly, and industriously. Read it through and through until it becomes part of your being and generates faith that will move mountains.
THE BIBLE is a mine of wealth, the source of health, and a world of pleasure. It is given to you in this life, will be opened at the judgment, and will stand forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the least to the greatest of labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.
