What are People saying about the Bible?

“Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.”― Ronald Reagan

“Take all that you can of this book upon reason, and the balance on faith, and you will live and die a happier man. (When a skeptic expressed surprise to see him reading a Bible)”― Abraham Lincoln

“But for this book we could not know right from wrong.”― Abraham Lincoln

“I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man. All the good from The Savior of the world is communicated to us through this Book.”― Abraham Lincoln

“The Bible is very easy to understand. But we Christians are a bunch of scheming swindlers. We pretend to be unable to understand it because we know very well that the minute we understand, we are obliged to act accordingly.”― Søren KierkegaardProvocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

“There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labour in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. . . . Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord. . . .”― Charles H. Spurgeon

“The Holy Scriptures are our letters from home.” Augustine of Hippo

“Reading the Bible will help you get to know the word, but it’s when you put it down and live your life that you get to know the author.”― Steve MaraboliLife, the Truth, and Being Free

“It ain’t the parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it’s the parts that I do understand.” Mark Twain

“Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible, the other 99 will read the Christian.”― Dwight Lyman Moody

“The Bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.”― Dwight Lyman Moody

“A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”― Charles H. Spurgeon

“You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilisation to pieces, turn the world upside down and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of literature.”― Mahatma Gandhi

“The reason you don’t like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.”― Billy Sunday

“The primary purpose of reading the Bible is not to know the Bible but to know God.”― James Merritt
