"THE BIBLE IS STILL LOVED BY MILLIONS,
READ BY MILLIONS, AND 
STUDIED BY MILLIONS"
- Bernard Ramm  -
John Adams
"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the BIBLE for their only law Book,  and every member should 
regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited!   Every member would be obliged in conscience,  to
temperance, frugality,  and industry;  to justice, kindness,  and charity towards his fellow men;  and to piety, 
love,  and reverence toward  Almighty  G-D ...  What a Utopia,  what a Paradise would this region be"

John Quincy Adams
"So great is my veneration for the BIBLE that the earlier my children begin to read it, the more confident will be
my hope that they will prove useful citizens to their country and respectable members of society"
***
"I have made it a practice for several years to read the BIBLE through in the course of every year.  I usually devote to this reading
the first hour after I rise every morning.  As, including the Apocrypha, it contains about fourteen hundred chapters, and as I meet
with occasional interruptions, when this reading is for single days, and sometimes for weeks, or even months, suspended, my
rule  is to read five chapters every morning, which leaves an allowance of about one-forth of the time for such interruptions"

James W. Alexander
"The study of G-D's W-rd, for the purpose of discovering G-D's will,  is the secret discipline which has formed the greatest characters"

Charles L. Allen
"In the BIBLE there are three distinctive meanings of grace;  It means the mercy and active love of G-D;
It means the winsome attractiveness of G-D;  It means the strength of G-D to overcome"

Matthew Arnold
"To the BIBLE men will return; and why?  Because they cannot do without it"

John H. Aughey

E.M. Bounds
"The only limits to prayer are the promises of G-D and His ability to fulfill those promises"

David Josiah Brewer
"No nation is better than its sacred book.  In that book are expressed its highest ideals of life, and no nation rises
above those ideals.  No nation has a sacred book to be compared with ours.  This American nation from its first
settlement at Jamestown to the present hour is based upon and permeated by the principles of the BIBLE.
The more this BIBLE enters into our national life the grander and purer and better will that life become"

Phillip Brooks
"The BIBLE shows how the world progresses.  It begins with a garden, but ends with a holy city"

William Jennings Bryan
"The BIBLE holds up before us ideals that are within sight of the weakest and the lowliest, and yet so high that the best and
the noblest are kept with their faces turned ever upward.  It carries the call of the Saviour to the remotest corners of
the earth;  on its pages are written the assurances of the present and our hopes for the future"

John Burton
"Holy  BIBLE,  Book Divine,
Precious Treasure,
Thou art mine;
Mine to teach me whence I came,
Mine to teach me what I am"


Thomas Carlyle

glimpses their far-distant, long-forgotten home"


George Washington Carver
"The secret of my success?  It is simple.  It is found in the BIBLE,
"In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths"

"Time can take nothing from the BIBLE.  It is the living monitor.  Like the sun,  it is the same in its light and
influence to man this day which it was years ago.  It can meet every present inquiry and console every present loss"
***
"The history of all the great characters of the BIBLE is summed up in this one sentence:
They acquainted themselves with G-D,  and acquiesced in His will in all things"
***
"The BIBLE resembles an extensive garden, where there is a vast variety and profusion of fruits and flowers, 
some of which are more essential or more splendid than others;  but there is not a blade suffered to
grow in it which has not its use and beauty in the system"

Oswald Chambers

"Adam was created to be the friend and companion of G-D,  he was to have dominion over all the life in
the air and earth and sea,  but one thing he was not to have dominion over, and that was himself"


William Ellery Channing
"The incongruity of the BIBLE with the age of its birth;  its freedom from earthly mixtures;  its original, unborrowed,
solitary greatness;  the suddenness with which it broke forth amidst the general gloom;  these,  to me,
are strong indications of its Divine descent.  I cannot reconcile them with a human origin"

Salmon P. Chase
"There came a time in my life when I doubted the divinity of the Scriptures, and I resolved as a lawyer and a judge
I would try the Book as I would try anything in the courtroom, taking evidence for and against.  It was a long,
serious and profound study and using the same principles of evidence in this religious matter as I always do in
secular matters, I have come to the decision that the BIBLE is a supernatural Book,  that it has come from G-D, and
that the only safety for the human race is to follow its teachings"

Rufus Choate
"No lawyer can afford to be ignorant of the BIBLE"

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"For more than a thousand years the BIBLE, collectively taken, has gone hand in hand with civilization, science, law  --

***
"Pile them,  if you will, on the left side of your study table;  but place your own Holy BIBLE on the right side -- all by itself, 
all alone -- and with a wide gap between them.   For ... there is a gulf between it and the so-called books of 
the East which severs the one from the other utterly, hopelessly, and forever ... a veritable gulf which cannot be
bridged over by any science of religious thought"

Charles Colson
"The BIBLE -- banned, burned, beloved.  More widely read, more frequently attacked than any other book in history.
Generations of intellectuals have attempted to discredit it,  dictators of every age have outlawed it and executed those
who read it.  Yet soldiers carry it into battle believing it more powerful than their weapons.  Fragments of it smuggled
into solitary prison cells have transformed ruthless killers into gentle saints"
.
Christopher Columbus
"It is hoped that by G-D's assistance,  some of the continents in the Ocean will be discovered ... for the Glory of G-D"

Joseph Cook

Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
"No bird is so solitary as the eagle.  Eagles never fly in a flock;  one, or at most two, have been seen at once.
But the life that is lived unto G-D, however it forfeits human companionship, knows Divine fellowship".
***
"We must dare to be alone.  Jacob must be left alone if the Angel of G-D is to whisper in his ear the mystic name of
Shiloh;  Daniel must be left alone if he is to see celestial visions;  John must be banished to Patmos if he is deeply
to take and firmly to keep "the print of Heaven".

Alexander Cruden
"All other Books are of little importance in comparison with the Holy Scriptures"

Albert Baird Cummins
"The empire of Caesar is gone;  the legions of Rome are smouldering in the dust;  the avalanches of Napoleon
hurled upon Europe have melted away, the prince of the pharoahs is fallen;  the pyramids they raised to be
their tombs are sinking every day in the desert sands;  Tyre is a rock for bleaching fisherman's nets;  Sidon has
scarcely left a wreck behind;  but the W-RD OF G-D still survives:   All things that threatened to extinguish it
have only aided it;  and it proves every day how transient is the noblest monument that men can build,
how enduring is the least W-rd that G-D has spoken"


Dante (Alighieri)
"In His will is our peace"

The Defender
"Other books were given for our information,  the BIBLE was given for our transformation"

Cecil B. DeMille
"After more than sixty years of almost daily reading of the BIBLE,  I never fail to find it always new and
marvellously in tune with the changing needs of every day"

Ernest von Dobschutz
"There is a small book: one can put it in one's pocket,  and yet all the libraries of America, numerous as
they are, would hardly be large enough to hold all the books which have been inspired by this one little volume. 
The reader will know what I am speaking of;  it is the BIBLE, as we are used to call it --  the Book, 
the book of mankind,  as it has properly been called"

Benjamin Franklin
"We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that 'e
xcept the L-RD build the House, they labor in vain that build it'
I  firmly believe this;  by our partial local interests;  our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall
become a reproach and a by word down to future ages"
***

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
"We all therefore have to face this ultimate and final question:  Do we accept the BIBLE as the Word of G-D, as the sole authority in all
matters of faith and practice, or do we not?  Is the whole of my thinking governed by Scripture, or do I come with my reason and pick and
choose out of Scripture and sit in judgment upon it, putting myself and modern knowledge forward as the ultimate standard and authority? 
The issue is crystal clear.  Do I accept Scripture as a revelation from G-D, or do I trust to speculation, human knowledge, human learning, 
human understanding and human reasons.  Or, putting it still more simply, Do I pin my faith to, and subject all my thinking to,  what
I read in the BIBLE?  Or do I defer to modern knowledge, to modern learning, to what people think today, to what we know at this
present time which was not known in the past?  It is inevitable that we occupy one or the other of those two positions."

E. Stanley Jones

Dr. Derek Prince
[The Last Word on THE MIDDLE EAST]

"As Christians, who accept the BIBLE as authoritative, we cannot ignore or reject this clear revelation of G-D's purpose
being worked out in our day.  We are therefore confronted with a vitally important question:  'how shall we respond?'
Before we can attempt to make an adequate answer to this question,  there are two other historical facts which we
must also take into account.  The first fact concerns all Christians of non-Jewish background.  Whatever our background
may be -- whether we be Africans or Arabs, Russians or Americans,  Britons or Chinese -- we all owe our entire
spiritual inheritance as Christians to one nation  -- That nation is Israel!"

"This is not a matter of subjective theory, but of plain, historical fact.  If there had never been a nation of Israel,  there would
have been no patriarchs,  no prophets,  no apostles,  no BIBLE and no Saviour.    In John 4:22, Jesus Himself summed
all this up in one simple statement:  "Salvation is from the Jews."  Christians from all other racial backgrounds owe
to the Jewish people a spiritual debt which can never be calculated"


Bernard Ramm

"The BIBLE is still loved by millions, read by millions, and studied by millions"

"Jews preserved it  [G-D's Holy Scriptures]  as no other manuscript has ever been preserved.  With their Massora they kept

"Your supreme contribution is faith in the W-RD OF THE G-D of Israel
"

Sir Walter Scott
"The most learned, acute, and diligent student cannot, in the longest life, obtain an entire knowledge of the BIBLE. 
The more deeply he works the mine, the richer and more abundant he finds the ore."

When the poet and novelist, Sir Walter Scott, lay dying, he said to his son-in-law, Lockhart, "Son, please bring me the Book."
The son-in-law was a bit uncertain because Walter Scott had a large library, so he replied, "Sir, which book?  Which book?"
The dying saint answered immediately, "My son, there is just one Book.  Bring me the Book."  At once
Lockhart went to the library and returned with Sir Walter's BIBLE.  Yes, there is but one Book!

"The books of men have their day and grow obsolete.

R.C. Sproul
"Here then, is the real problem of our negligence.  We fail in our duty to study G-D's Word not so much because it is difficult to
understand, no so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work.  Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or lack of passion. 
Our problem is that we are lazy."

"... then, since G-D wrote it, mark its truthfulness.  If I had written it there would be worms of critics who would at once swarm on it,
and would cover it with their evil spawn;  had I written it, there would be men who would pull it to pieces at once, and perhaps quite
right to.  But this is the Word of G-D.  Come, search, ye critics, and find a flaw; examine it from its Genesis to its Revelation and
find error.  This is a vein of pure gold,  unalloyed by quartz or any earthly substance.  This is a star without a speck;  a sun without a blot; 
a light without darkness;  a moon without paleness;  a glory without dimness.  O BIBLE!  It cannot be said of any other book, that
it is perfect and pure;  but of Thee we can declare all wisdom is gathered up in Thee, without a particle of folly.  This is the
Judge that ends the strife, where wit and reason fail.  This is the Book untainted by error,  but is pure,  unalloyed, perfect truth.  Why? 
Because G-D wrote it.  Ah!  Charge G-D with error if you please, tell Him that His Book is not what it ought to be ...
Blessed BIBLE, Thou art all truth."

We conceive that it is impossible for the Word of G-D written in the book of nature, and G-D's Word written in Holy Scripture,
to contradict one another ... physical science is not complete, but is only in a condition of progress"  --
[Signed by 800 scientists of Great Britain, recorded in Bodelian Library, Oxford].

"The real influence of the BIBLE cannot be measured:  It is reckoned only in terms of hearts that have been lifted up,
decisions that have been changed, the men and women who, in response to its impervious demands,
have done justice and loved kindness and walked humbly with G-D"

Emanuel Swedenborg
"We are, because G-D is"


Jeremy Taylor

"From David we learn to give thanks for everything. --
Every furrow in the Book of Psalms is sown with the seeds of thanksgiving"

Midrash Tehillim 5:6
"It is written,
"Listen to my words,  O G-D,  understand my meditation"
King David said, "Master of the universe:  When I have the strength to stand before You in prayer and express
My words,  listen to me.  But when I do not have the strength, understand what is in my heart"

Lord Tennyson

"BIBLE reading is an education in itself"

Henry Thiessen
"The BIBLE is superior to all other religious books in content.  It sets up the highest ethical standards, enjoins the most absolute
obedience, denounces every form of sin, and yet informs the sinner how he can become right with G-D. 
How could uninspired men write a book like that?"

R.A. Torrey
"It is clear that there must be difficulties for us in a revelation such as the BIBLE.  If someone were to hand me a book that was as
simple to me as the multiplication table, and say, 'This is the Word of G-D.  In it He has revealed His whole will and wisdom,'  I would
shake my head and say, 'I cannot believe it;  that is too easy to be a perfect revelation of infinite wisdom.'  There must be, in any
complete revelation of G-D'S mind and will and character and being;  things hard for the beginner to understand;  and the wisest
and best of us are but beginners."

A.W. Tozer
"The Bible was written in tears; and to tears it yields its best treasures."

George W. Truett
"To know the will of G-D is the greatest knowledge.  To do the will of G-D is the greatest achievement"

"As believers we understand the importance of the BIBLE.  It is G-D's inspired, infallible, inerrant Word.  It is authoratative in all
matters to which it speaks, for it is the very Word of the Almighty G-D of the universe.  It is not enough, however, to speak of
its importance.  We must learn to read it, study it, memorize it and apply it to our lives.  When it comes to studying the Word of G-D
it is important that we handle the text correctly so that we "rightly divide the Word of Truth." (II Timothy 2:15).

Henry Van Dyke
"Born in the East and clothed in Oriental form and imagery, the BIBLE walks the ways of all the world with familiar feet and enters land
after land to find its own everywhere.  It has learned to speak in hundreds of languages to the heart of man.  Children listen to its stories with
wonder and delight, and wise men ponder them as parables of life.  The wicked and proud tremble at its warnings, but to the wounded,
and penitent it has a mother's voice.  It has woven itself into our dearest dreams;  so that love, friendship, sympathy, devotion, memory,
hope, put on the beautiful garments of its treasured speech.  No man is poor or desolate who has this treasure for his own.  When the
landscape darkens, and the trembling pilgrim comes to the Valley named of the Shadow, he is not afraid to enter;  he takes the rod and
staff of Scripture in his hand;  he says to friend and comrade;
'Goodbye;  we shall meet again;', and, confronted by that support,
he goes toward the lonely pass as one who walks through darkness into light."

Jean Vianney

"Our evaluation of the BIBLE and other "holy books" is governed by the recognition that the BIBLE is the inspired Word of G-D. 
If  G-D's final Word is found in what we call the BIBLE, then no other book can be G-D's Word.  To differ with what the Bible says is to
differ with G-D."

George Washington

Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on our minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience
both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles"

Daniel Webster

"If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due my parents for instilling in me an early love of
the Scriptures.  If we abide by the principles taught in the BIBLE, our country will go on prospering and to prosper;
but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may
overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity"

Noah Webster
"The Bible is the Book of faith, and a Book of doctrine, and a Book of morals, and a Book of religion, of special revelation from G-D; but
it is also a Book which teaches man its responsibility, his own dignity, and his equality with his fellow man"

"The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of  all our civil constitutions and laws.

All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and

"The BIBLE is the chief moral cause of all that is good, and the best corrector of all that is evil, in human society;
the best Book for regulating temporal concerns of men, and the only Book that can serve as an infallible guide to future felicity

John Wesley

"This Book (the BIBLE)  had to be written by one of three people:  good men, bad men or G-D.  It couldn't have been written by
good men because they said it was inspired by the revelation of G-D.  Good men don't lie and deceive. 
It couldn't have been written by  bad men because bad men would not write something that would condemn themselves. 
It leaves only one conclusion.  It was given by divine inspiration of G-D"

the land which the L-RD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."
