Why Read The Bible?


The Bible is a storehouse of divine truth which will repay reading whether it be approached merely because of its literary value, its ethical teaching, or its practical bearing on everyday life (e.g. the Proverbs).

But for those who are prepared to study the contents of this wonderful volume with the object of learning what God desires of them, it offers present and future blessings beyond the ability of man to assess (Rev. 1:3), for "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him; (1 Cor. 2:9).

This, however, requires study, that faith might be established and increased. "The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Cor. 2:14). With study there will be developed a love for the Book, and for its Author whose love will be revealed therein, and by this influence the Reader will be led to radiate that same love to others. Therefore, this divine Book is the greatest power for good in the hands of man -- if it be read with understanding.

Our objective is to place the key to its understanding in the hands of the Reader that he might better comprehend its message, and so be drawn by the power of God's love.

The present edition has been completely revised and rewritten.
