The Bible is God’s Word given in man’s language. — Max Lucado

The Bible is alive; it speaks to me. It has feet; it runs after me. It has hands; it lays hold of me! — Martin Luther

I have known 95 of the world’s great men in my time, and of these, 87 were followers of the Bible.  — William Gladstone

The Scriptures teach us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering and the most comfortable way of dying. — John Flavel

The evidence for our New Testament writings is ever so much greater than the evidence for many writings of classical authors, the authenticity of which no-one dreams of questioning. And if the New Testament were a collection of secular writings, their authenticity would generally be regarded as beyond all doubt.   — F.F. Bruce

Of one hundred men, one will read the Bible; the ninety-nine will read the Christian.  — Dwight L. Moody

Scripture needs no updating, editing, or refining. Whatever time or culture you live in, it is eternally relevant. It needs no help in that regard. It is pure, sinless, inerrant truth; it is enduring. It is God’s revelation for every generation. It was written by the omniscient Spirit of God, who is infinitely more sophisticated than anyone who dares stand in judgment on Scripture’s relevancy for our society, and infinitely wiser than all the best philosophers, analysts, and psychologists who pass like a childhood parade into irrelevancy. — John MacArthur

A layman who has the Scripture is more than Pope or council without it. — Martin Luther

The Word of God is creative. It is a hammer that crushes the hardness of our insubordination. It is medicine that heals the broken-hearted. And it is light that gives us guidance and hope on our way. — John Piper

This Book contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s character. Here paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand object; our good is its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is given you in life and will be opened in the judgment and will be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.  — Author Unknown

The vigor of our spiritual life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Bible in our life and thoughts. — George Muller

The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible. — D.L. Moody

My own experience is that the Bible is dull when I am dull. When I am really alive, and set in upon the text with a tidal pressure of living affinities, it opens, it multiplies discoveries, and reveals depths even faster than I can note them. The worldly spirit shuts the Bible; the Spirit of God makes it a fire, flaming out all meanings and glorious truths. — Horace Bushnell

The Bible is a window in this prison-world, through which we may look into eternity. — Timothy Dwight

If God is a reality, and the soul is a reality, and you are an immortal being, what are you doing with your Bible shut? — Herrick Johnson

Other books we may read and criticize. To the Scriptures we must bow the entire soul, with all its faculties. — Edward N. Kirk

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

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

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. — D.L.  Moody

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

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

I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.– Billy Graham

The Bible is shallow enough for a child not to drown, yet deep enough for an elephant to swim.– Augustine

Many of the Lord’s people currently commit the same error as did the saints at Corinth. The words of the Lord are spirit and life, but these people do not accept the words accordingly. They investigate theological problems with a very cold mind and search the hidden meaning of the Bible with the design of presenting the best interpretation. They satisfy their lust for knowledge. — Watchman Nee

The Bible offers three metaphors that teach us God’s view of life: Life is a test, life is a trust and life is a temporary assignment.– Rick Warren

Though the Bible was written over sixteen centuries by at least forty authors, it has one central theme–salvation through faith in Christ. — Max Lucado
