BIBLE

[ Also see Christianity Gospel Ministers Scripture Theology ]

This Bible, then, has a mission, grander than any mere creation of God; for in this volume are infinite wisdom, and infinite love. Between its covers are the mind and heart of God; and they are for man's good, for his salvation, his guidance, his spiritual nourishment. If now I neglect my Bible, I do my soul a wrong; for the fact of this Divine message is evidence that I need it.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge

I am heartily glad to witness your veneration for a book which to say nothing of its holiness or authority, contains more specimens of genius and taste than any other volume in existence.
      - Walter Savage Landor

In morality there are books enough written both by ancient and modern philosophers, but the morality of the Gospel doth so exceed them all that to give a man a full knowledge of true morality I shall send him to no other book than the New Testament.
      - John Locke (1)

It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter: it is all pure, all sincere, nothing too much, nothing wanting.
      - John Locke (1)

At the time when that odious style which deforms the writings of Hall and of Lord Bacon was almost universal, had appeared that stupendous ivory, the English Bible,--a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay

The English Bible--a book which, if every thing else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay

One gem from that ocean is worth all the pebbles from earthly streams.
      - Robert Murray McCheyne

When you are reading a book in a dark room, and come to a difficult part, you take it to a window to get more light. So take your Bibles to Christ.
      - Robert Murray McCheyne

We glory most in the fact, that Scripture so commends itself to the conscience, and experience so bears out the Bible, that the gospel can go the round of the world, and carry with it, in all its travel, its own mighty credentials.
      - Henry Melvill

If you are ever tempted to speak lightly or think lightly of it, just sit down and imagine what this world would be without it. No Bible! A wound and no cure, a storm and no covert, a condemnation and no shrift, a lost eternity and no ransom!. Alas for us if this were all; alas for us if the ladder of science were the only stair to lead us up to God!
      - Robert Rhoden Meredith

Good, the more communicated, more abundant grows.
      - John Milton

It is not hard for any man who hath a Bible in his hand to borrow good words and holy sayings in abundance; but to make them his own is a work of grace only from above.
      - John Milton

The Saviour who flitted before the patriarchs through the fog of the old dispensation, and who spake in time past to the fathers by the prophets, articulate but unseen, is the same Saviour who, on the open heights of the Gospel, and in the abundant daylight of this New Testament, speaks to us. Still all along it is the same Jesus, and that Bible is from beginning to end all of it, the word of Christ.
      - John Milton

There are no songs comparable to the songs of Zion, no orations equal to those of the prophets, and no politics like those which the Scriptures teach.
      - John Milton

The increasing influence of the Bible is marvelously great, penetrating everywhere. It carries with it a tremendous power of freedom and justice guided by a combined force of wisdom and goodness.
      - David Macbeth Moir (known as Delta)

I never saw a useful Christian who was not a student of the Bible. If a man neglects his Bible, he may pray and ask God to use him in His work; but God cannot make much use of him, for there is not much for the Holy Ghost to work upon.
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

Merely reading the Bible is no use at all without we study it thoroughly, and hunt it through, as it were, for some great truth.
      - Dwight Lyman Moody

All systems of morality are fine. The Gospel alone has exhibited a complete assemblage of the principles of morality divested of all absurdity. It is not composed, like your creed, of a few commonplace sentences put in bad verse. Do you wish to see that which is really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

Like the needle to the North Pole, the Bible points to heaven.
      - R. Nichol

Men cannot be well educated without the Bible. It ought, therefore, to hold the chief place in every situation of learning throughout Christendom; and I do not know of a higher service that could be rendered to this republic than the bringing about this desirable result.
      - Eliphalet Nott

The Bible begins gloriously with Paradise, the symbol of youth, and ends with the everlasting kingdom, with the holy city. The history of every man should be a Bible.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)

To invoke a Kierkegaardesque figure of speech, the beauty of the language of the Bible can be like a set of dentist's instruments nearly laid out on a table and hanging on a wall, intriguing in their technological complexity and with their stainless steel highly polished--until they set to work on the job for which they were originally designed. Then all of a sudden my reaction changes from "How shiny and beautiful they all are!" to "Get that damned thing out of my mouth!"
      - Jaroslav Pelikan, Whose Bible Is It

A knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without the Bible.
      - William Lyon Phelps

The Book, this Holy Book, on every line,
  Mark'd with the seal of high divinity,
    On every leaf bedew'd with drops of love
      Divine, and with the eternal heraldry
        And signature of God Almighty stamp'd
          From first to last; this ray of sacred light,
            This lamp, from off the everlasting throne,
              Mercy took down, and in the night of time
                Stood, casting on the dark her gracious bow;
                  And evermore beseeching men With tears
                    And earnest sighs, to read, believe and live.
      - Robert Pollok

The pure and noble, the graceful and dignified, simplicity of language is nowhere in such perfection as in the Scriptures and Homer. The whole book of Job, with regard both to sublimity of thought and morality, exceeds, beyond all comparison, the most noble parts of Homer.
      - Alexander Pope
