"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
"The Bible does not offer a transactional religion with a distant god—it offers a transformational relationship with a loving Father."
– Jim Dennison
"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 harbour is, and how to reach it without running on rocks and bars."
– Henry Ward Beecher
"Time can take nothing from the Bible. It is the living monitor. Like the sun, it is the same in its light and influence to man this day which it was years ago. It can meet every present inquiry and console every present loss."
– Richard Cecil
"There came a time in my life when I doubted the divinity of the Scriptures, and I resolved as a lawyer and a judge I would try the Book as I would try anything in the courtroom, taking evidence for and against. It was a long, serious and profound study and using the same principles of evidence in this religious matter as I always do in secular matters, I have come to the decision that the Bible is a supernatural Book, that it has come from God, and that the only safety for the human race is to follow its teachings."
– Salmon P. Chase
"Other books were given for our information, the Bible was given for our transformation."
– The Defender
"The Scriptures teach us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most comfortable way of dying."
– John Flavel
"The best evidence of the Bible's being the Word of God is found between its covers."
– Charles Hodge
"Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself but because it contradicts them."
– E. Paul Hovey
