For me the Word of God is a happening, not a thing. Therefore the Bible must become the Word of God, and it does this through the work of the Spirit.
~ Karl Barth
Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself, but because it contradicts them.
~ E. Paul Harvey
The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.
~ Dwight L. Moody
The Bible is the Constitution of Christian civilization.
~ Gordon Palmer, in By Freedom’s Holy Light (NY: Devin-Adair Co., 1964), page 4
I could not believe that anyone who had read this book would be so foolish as to proclaim that the Bible in every literal word was the divinely inspired, inerrant word of God. Have these people simply not read the text? Are they hopelessly uninformed? Is there a different Bible? Are they blinded by a combination of ego needs and naivete?
~ Bishop John Shelby Spong
A Book which will lift men up to God must have come down from God.
~ R.A. Torrey, quoted by A.W. Pink in “The Miraculous Power of the Bible Shows Forth That Its Inspirer Is The Almighty”
If every book but the Bible were destroyed not a single spiritual truth would be lost.
~ R.A. Torrey, quoted by A.W. Pink in “The Completeness of the Bible Demonstrates Its Divine Perfection”
Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.
~ A.W. Tozer
The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.
~ A. W. Tozer
It is impossible rightly to govern the world without God and the Bible.
~ George Washington
If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we or our prosperity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.
~ Daniel Webster
God himself has condescended to teach me the way. He has written it down in a book. Oh, give me that book! At any price give me the book of God. Let me be a man of one book.
~ John Wesley
We search the world for truth: we cull
The good, the pure, the beautiful
From graven stone and written scroll:
And, weary seekers of the best,
We come back laden from our quest,
To find that all the sages said
Is in the Book our Mothers read.
~ John Greenleaf Whittier
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
~ The Bible, Hebrews 4:12
