I like to read all kinds of books, but the Bible is unlike any other book in the world!
It claims to be an accurate record of the words of God Himself. Internal and external evidence substantiates this claim but there is an intrinsic convicting power that will move anyone who reads it with a good and honest heart to a sure and certain faith.
Many have never really given the book a fair and thorough reading.
The benefits afforded those who take this book for what it is are unparalleled. Humans are lost in confusion, doubt and ignorance without it. It is the one book that can be totally relied upon for every inquiry of mankind. It provides answers that can be found nowhere else. It gives us the way of abundant and eternal life.
No other revelation from God is needed but that which is found within the covers of the Bible. It was given for our fulfillment; that we may reach maturity as the people of God and have the ability to accomplish His purposes.
So, give me the Bible! May I recommend it to you, too? You will never have a better read, nor a more important one. It is one of those books that you will not want to put down until you get all the way through. Then, you will want to read it over and over again. It is more than a book; it is a message from your Creator, Savior and Lord.
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
