Notable sayings about the Bible

Somewhere I ended up with the book Bible Handbook by Henry H. Halley. It is a 1955 Bible commentary. It has some great things in it. As I read through and came upon these quotes I was reminded of how important God's Word has been through the ages. It saddens me that ours may be the time in history that the people turn their backs to its Message!!! Pray for our Nation.

Abraham Lincoln: "I believe the Bible is the best gift that God has ever given to man. All the good from the Saviour of the world is communicated to us through this book."

+

George Washington: "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

Daniel Webster: "If there's anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the scriptures. If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity." + U. S. Grant: "The Bible is our sheet-anchor of our liberties."

+

Andrew Jackson: That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests." + Robert E. Lee: "In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength."

Henry Van Dyke: "Born in the East and clothed in Oriental form and imagery, the Bible walks the ways of all the world with familiar feet, and enters land after land to find its own everywhere. It has learned to speak in hundreds of languages to the heart of man. It comes into the palace to tell the monarch that he is a servant of the Most High, and into the cottage to assure the peasant that he is a son of God. Children listen to its stories with wonder and delight, and wise men ponder them as parables of life. The wicked and the proud tremble at its warnings, but to the wounded and penitent it has a mother's voice. It has woven itself into our dearest dreams; so that love, friendship, sympathy, devotion, memory, hope, put on the beautiful garments of its treasured speech. No man is poor or desolate who has the treasure for his own. When the landscape darkens, and the trembling pilgrim comes to the Valley named of the Shadow, he is not afraid to enter; he takes the rod and staff of Scripture in his hand; he says to friend and comrade, Goodbye; we shall meet again, and confronted by that support, he goes toward the lonely pass as one who walks thru darkness into light.

and the Treasure is Jesus Christ, the Light of the World!!!
