So it turns out I’m not the only one that likes the Bible

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.”

“But for the Bible we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare… are to be found portrayed in it.”

“Take all this Book you can upon reason and the balance upon faith, and you will live and die a better man.”

George Washington

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

Horace Greeley

“It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom.”

Robert E. Lee

“In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.”

John Quincy Adams

“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 of their country and respectable members of society. I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year.”

Immanuel Kant

“The existence of the Bible, as a book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced. Every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity.”

Charles Dickens

“The New Testament is the very best book that ever has or ever will be known in the world.”

Daniel Webster

“If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the Scriptures. If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

“The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature, with a power that conquers all that oppose it.”

Queen Victoria

“That book accounts for the supremacy of England.”

Andrew Jackson

“That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests.”

Patrick Henry

“The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed.”

Noah Webster

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

Dwight D. Eisenhower

“The Bible is endorsed by the ages. Our civilization is built upon its words. In no other book is there such a collection of inspired wisdom, reality, and hope.”

Ronald Reagan

“Within the covers of the Bible are all the answers for all the problems men face. The Bible can touch hearts, order minds, and refresh souls.”

Woodrow Wilson

“I am sorry for the men who do not read the Bible every day. I wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and of the pleasure. It is one of the most singular books in the world, for every time you open it, some text that you have read a score of times suddenly beams with new meaning.”

“When you have read the Bible, you will know it is the word of God, because you will have found in it the key to your own heart.”

Mark Twain

“Most people are bothered by those passages in the Scripture which they cannot understand. The Scripture which troubles me most is the Scripture I do understand.”

Dwight L. Moody

“Either sin will keep you from this Book or this Book will keep you from sin.”

Sir Isaac Newton

“I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by men who were inspired.  I study the Bible daily.”
