There is no other book like the Bible, no book that even remotely compares with the Bible. No other book has been so often printed or widely distributed in as many languages as the Bible. Its preservation is miraculous, its circulation amazing. No other book has influenced human civilization, literature, art or government as has the Bible, nor has any book changed the lives of more people than the Bible. Its message is timeless. It will be as equally applicable to the twenty-first century as it was to the first. It fits men of all ages and is never out of date. It speaks with equal power to Jew or Gentile, black or white, old or young, learned or ignorant.
