Why the Bible?

I hesitated being so bold in the title of my blog. I thought I could say something about faith, or spirituality, popular subjects these days. But then I realized that I really wanted to talk about the Bible.

Of all the books ever published, the Bible at once offers the greatest comfort and conjures up the greatest controversies among people.

We cannot begin to imagine how different our world would be if there had never been the holy scriptures. The first thing I think of is, where would we learn to love one another, to do unto others as you would have them do unto you? Where would we learn about justice, about having a servant attitude, about helping the oppressed? And where would we learn about forgiveness, about eternity, not to mention the character of God and his son Jesus?
