This is EXCITING!

The Bible is being voraciously read... in not your normal places!!


Click HERE for an article about Norway and the Bible.


And click HERE for an article about South Sudan and the Bible.



And I had thought that mainly folks in China and South America
were the voracious readers of the Holy Book these days.

-------
Here are some good quotes on the Bible...

"The Bible is the only credible guide either as to the real relationship between man and the earth and the great Creator of both or concerning the purpose of the creation of both."
- Joseph Franklin Rutherford

"When you read God's Word, you must constantly be saying to yourself, "It is talking to me, and about me."
- Soren Kierkegaard

“The Bible is alive. It speaks to me. It has hands, It lays hold of me. It has feet. It runs after me.” 
- Martin Luther

"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"
- John Quincy Adams
 
"To the BIBLE men will return; and why?  Because they cannot do without it."
- Matthew Arnold

"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"
- George Washington Carver

"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."
- Charles Colson 

"Other books were given for our information, the BIBLE was given for our transformation."
THE DEFENDER

"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."
- Cecil B. DeMille

"Hold fast to the BIBLE as the sheet anchor of your liberties,  write its precepts on your hearts and practice them in your lives."
- Ulysses S. Grant
 
"It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a BIBLE reading people.  The principles of The BIBLE are the groundwork of human freedom."
- Horace Greeley

That's SO MANY QUOTES!!!    
And I have more!!!!

Whoa. 

I'm excited!
