There is no passion that is not finely expressed in those parts of the inspired writings which are proper for divine songs and anthems.
      - Joseph Addison

What can be nobler than the idea it gives us of the Supreme Being?
      - Joseph Addison

The life-boat may have a tasteful bend and beautiful decoration, but these are not the qualities for which I prize it; it was my salvation from the howling sea! So the interest which is regenerate soul takes in the Bible is founded on a personal application to the heart of the saving truth which it contains.
      - James W. Alexander

The help, the guide, the balm of souls perplexed.
      - John Arbuthnot

They who are not induced to believe and live as they ought by those discoveries which God hath made in Scriptures would stand out against any evidence whatever, even that of a messenger sent express from the other world.
      - Francis Atterbury

There are two books laid before us to study, to prevent our falling into error; first, the volume of the Scriptures, which reveal the will of God; then the volume of the Creatures, which express His power.
      - Francis Bacon

There never was found, in any age of the world, either religion or law that did so highly exalt the public good as the Bible.
      - Francis Bacon

The Bible, as a revelation from God, was not designed to give us all the information we might desire, nor to solve all the questions about which the human soul is perplexed, but to impart enough to be a safe guide to the haven of eternal rest.
      - Albert Barnes

A single book has saved me; but that book is not of human origin. Long had I despised it, long had I deemed it a class-book for the credulous and ignorant until, having investigated the Gospel of Christ, with an ardent desire to ascertain its truth or falsity, its pages proffered to my inquiries the simplest knowledge of man and nature, and the simplest and at the same time the most exalted system of moral ethics. Faith, hope and charity were enkindled in my bosom; and every advancing step strengthened me in the conviction that the morals of this book are as infinitely superior to human morals as its oracles are superior to human opinions.
      - Bautin

There is not a book on earth so favorable to all the kind and to all the sublime affections, or so unfriendly to hatred and persecution, to tyranny, injustice, and every sort of malevolence, as the Gospel.
      - James Beattie

Many will say, "I can find God without the help of the Bible, or church, or minister." Very well. Do so if you can. The Ferry Company would feel no jealousy of a man who should prefer to swim to New York. Let him do so if he is able, and we will talk about it on the other shore; but probably trying to swim would be the thing that would bring him quickest to the boat. So God would have no jealousy of a man's going to heaven without the aid of the Bible, or church, or minister; but let him try to do so, and it will be the surest way to bring him back to them for assistance.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The Bible is God's chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you where the harbor is, and how to reach its without running on rocks or bars.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The Bible is the most betrashed book in the world. Coming to it through commentaries is much like looking at a landscape through garret windows t, over which generations of unmolested spiders have spun their webs.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The Bible stands alone in human literature in its elevated conception of manhood, in character and conduct.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The word of God tends to make large-minded noble-minded men.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

There are many persons of combative tendencies, who read for ammunition, and dig out of the Bible iron for balls. They read, and they find nitre and charcoal and sulphur for powder. They read, and they find cannon. They read, and they make portholes and embrasures. And if a man does not believe as they do, they look upon him as an enemy, and let fly the Bible at him to demolish him. So men turn the word of God into a vast arsenal, filled with all manner of weapons, offensive and defensive.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

What is the Bible in your house? It is not the Old Testament, it is not the New Testament, it is not the Gospel according to Matthew, or Mark, or Luke, or John; it is the Gospel according to William; it is the Gospel according to Mary; it is the Gospel according to Henry and James; it is the Gospel according to your name. You write your own Bible.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The Bible is a precious storehouse, and the Magna Charta of a Christian. There he reads of his Heavenly Father's love, and of his dying Saviour's legacies. There he sees a map of his travels through the wilderness, and a landscape, too, of Canaan.
      - John Berridge

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 perect, throughly furnished unto all g good works.
      - Bible, II Timothy (ch. III, v. 16-17)

Give the Bible the place it your families to which it is justly entitled, and then, through the unsearchable riches of Christ, many a household among you may hereafter realize that most blessed consummation, and appear a whole family in heaven.
      - Henry Augustus Boardman

As the moon, though darkened with spots, gives us a much greater light than the stars that sewn all-luminous, so do the Scriptures afford more light than the brightest human authors. In them the ignorant may learn all requisite knowledge, and the most knowing may learn to discern their ignorance.
      - Robert Boyle

In the Bible the ignorant may learn all requisite knowledge, and the most knowing may learn to discern their ignorance.
      - Robert Boyle

I use the Scriptures, not as an arsenal to be resorted to only for arms and weapons, but as a matchless temple, where I delight to be, to contemplate the beauty, the symmetry, and the magnificence of the structure, and to increase my awe, and excite my devotion to the Deity there preached and adored.
      - Robert Boyle,
        Some Consideration Touching the Style of the Holy Scriptures

So far as I ever observed God's dealings with my soul, the flights of preachers sometimes entertained me, but it was Scripture expressions which did penetrate my heart, and in a way peculiar to themselves.
      - John Brown (1)

Eighteen centuries have passed since the Bible was finished. There have been centuries of great changes. In their course the world has been wrought over into newness at almost every point. But to-day the text of the Scriptures, after copyings almost innumerable and after having been tossed about through ages of ignorance and tumult, is found by exhaustive criticism to be unaltered in every important particular--there being not a single doctrine, nor duty, nor fact of any grade, that is brought into question by variations of readings--a fact that stands alone in the history of such ancient literature.
      - Enoch Fitch Burr
