[ Also see Christianity Gospel Ministers Scripture Theology ]

How admirable and beautiful is the simplicity of the Evangelists! They never speak injuriously of the enemies of Jesus Christ, of His judges, nor of His executioners. They report the facts without a single reflection. They comment neither on their Master's mildness when He was smitten, nor on His constancy in the hour of His ignominious death, which they thus describe: "And they crucified Jesus."
      - Jean Baptiste Racine

The Bible alone of all the books in the world, instead of uttering the opinions of the successive ages that produced it, has been the antagonist of these opinions.
      - Stuart Robinson

I will answer for it, the longer you read the Bible, the more you will like it; it will grow sweeter and sweeter; and the more you get into the spirit of it, the more you will get into the spirit of Christ.
      - William Romaine

The most learned, acute, and diligent student cannot, in the longest life, obtain an entire knowledge of this one volume.
      - Sir Walter Scott

We pick out a text here and there to make it serve our turn; whereas, if we take it all together, and considered what went before and what followed after, we should find it meant no such thing.
      - John Selden

You will want a book which contains not man's thoughts, but God's--not a book that may amuse you, but a book that can save you--not even a book that can instruct you, but a book on which you can venture an eternity--not only a book which can give relief to your spirit, but redemption to your soul--a book which contains salvation, and conveys it to you, one which shall at once be the Saviour's book and the sinner's.
      - John Selden

The main condition is that the spiritual ear should be open to overhear and patiently take in, and the will ready to obey that testimony which, I believe, God bears in every human heart, however dull, to those great truths which the Bible reveals. This, and not logic, is the way to grow in religious knowledge, to know that the truths of religion are not shadows, but deep realities.
      - John Campbell Shairp

Wherever God's word is circulated, it stirs the hearts of the people, it prepares for public morals. Circulate that word, and you find the tone of morals immediately changed. It is God speaking to man.
      - Matthew Simpson

Wherever public worship has been established and regularly, maintained idolatry has vanished from the face of the earth. There is not now a temple to a heathen god where the word of God is read.
      - Matthew Simpson

Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

High above all earthly lower happiness the blessedness of the eight Beatitudes towers into the heaven itself. They are white with the snows of eternity; they give a space, a meaning, a dignity to all the rest of the earth over which they brood.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

Even the style of the Scriptures is more than human.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Here there is milk for babes, whilst there is manna for Angels; truth level with the mind of a peasant, truth soaring beyond the reach of. a Seraph.
      - Hugh Stowell

The translators of the Bible were masters of an English style much fitter for that work than any we see in our present writings; the which is owing to the simplicity that runs through the whole.
      - Jonathan Swift

The Bible is a warm letter of affection from a parent to a child; and yet there are many who see chiefly the severer passages. As there may be fifty or sixty nights of gentle dews, in one summer, that will not cause as much remark as one hailstorm of half an hour, so there are those who are more struck by those passages of the Bible that announce the indignation of God than by those that announce His -affection.
      - Thomas De Witt Talmage

The reason why we find so many dark places in the Bible is, for the most part, because there are so many dark places in our hearts.
      - Friedrich August Tholuck

As the profoundest philosophy of ancient Rome and Greece lighted her taper at Israel's altar, so the sweetest strains of the pagan muse were swept from harps attuned on Zion's hill.
      - Edward Thomson

With the history of Moses no book in the world, in point of antiquity, can contend.
      - John Tillotson

A loving trust in the Author of the Bible is the best preparation for a wise study of the Bible.
      - Henry Clay Trumbull

The Bible has been my guide in perplexity, and my comfort in trouble. It has roused me when declining, and animated me in languor. Other writings may be good, but they want certainty and force. The Bible carries its own credentials along with it, and proves spirit and life to the soul. In other writings I hear the words of a stranger or a servant. In the Bible I hear the language of my Father and my friend. Other books contain only the picture of bread. The Bible presents me with real manna, and feeds me with the bread of life.
      - Unknown

A man may read the figure on the dial, but be cannot tell how the day goes unless the sun shines on the dial; we may read the Bible over, but we cannot learn to purpose till the Spirit of God shine into our hearts.
      - Sir William Watson (2)

The Scripture is to be its own interpreter, or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture.
      - Sir William Watson (2)

In Job and the Psalms we shall find more sublime ideas, more elevated language, than in any of the heathen versifiers of Greece or Rome.
      - Isaac Watts

If there be any thing in my style of thought to be commended, the credit is due to my kind parents in instilling into my mind an early love of the Scriptures.
      - Daniel Webster

As the telescope is not a substitute for, but an aid to, our sight, so revelation is not designed to supersede the use of reason, but to supply its deficiencies.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
