The Bible is the Book of Books


"The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed.” 
Patrick Henry

“The Bible is a book, in comparison with which, all others in my eyes are of minor importance; which in all my perplexities and distresses has never failed to give me light and strength.” 
General Robert E. Lee

“The truly wise man is he who always believes the Bible against the opinion of any man.” 
R.A. Torrey

“The Word of God is above the Church.” 
Archbishop Thomas Cranmer

“I will put down all apparent inconsistencies in the Bible to my own ignorance.” 
John Newton

“We must never edit God.” 
A.W. Tozer

“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if were now posterity to neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury our glory in profound obscurity.” 
Daniel Webster

“Every thinking man, when he thinks, realises that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure what life would be if those teachings were removed. We would lose almost all the standards by which we now judge both public and private morals; all the standards to which we, with more or less resolution, strive to raise ourselves." 
Theodore Roosevelt

“The Scriptures teach us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most comfortable way of dying.”
John Flavel

“A Bible reading laity is a nation's surest defence against error.” 
Bishop J.C. Ryle

“It is a miracle how God has so long preserved His Book! How great and glorious it is to have the Word of God!” 
Martin Luther

“The Christian feels that the tooth of time gnaws all books but the Bible...19 centuries of experience have tested it. It has passed through critical fires no other volume has suffered and its spiritual truth has endured the flames and come out without so much as the smell of burning.” 
W.E. Sangster

“Doers of the Word are the best hearers.” 
Thomas Watson

“It is the best gift God has given to man. All the good Saviour gave to the world was communicated through this Book. But for it, we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man's welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in It.” Abraham Lincoln

“A man has deprived himself of the best there is in the world who has deprived himself of this, a knowledge of the Bible. When you have read the Bible, you will know that it is the Word of God, because you will have found it the key to your own heart, your own happiness, and your own duty.” Woodrow Wilson

“In this age of space flight when we use the modern tools of science to advance into new regions of human activity, the Bible...remains in every way an up-to-date book. Our knowledge and use of the laws of nature that enable us to fly to the moon, also enable us to destroy our home planet with the atom bomb. Science itself does not address the question whether we should use the power at our disposal for good or for evil. The guidelines of what we ought to do are furnished in the moral Law of God.” 
Prof. Wernher von Braun

"A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.” 
Theodore Roosevelt

"Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; The Book widens and deepens with our years.” 
Charles Spurgeon

“Education is useless without the Bible.” 
Noah Webster

“The Bible is the chief moral cause of all that is good, and the best corrective of all that is evil, in human society; the best Book for regulating the temporal concerns of men, and the only Book that can serve as an infallible guide...the principles of genuine liberty, and of wise laws and administrations, are to be drawn from the Bible and sustained by its authority. The man therefore, who weakens or destroys the Divine authority of that Book may be accessory to all the public disorders which society is doomed to suffer...” Noah Webster
“My conscience is captive to the Word of God.” 
Martin Luther

“The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all of our civil constitutions and laws...All the miseries and evils which men suffer from - crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war - proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”
Noah Webster
