I read many books, some are so good and move me in a way that I want to share them with others. I have never had anyone say to me, hey I was reading the BIBLE it is the best and true, you should read it ! Why is that ? As God reveals the truth of his word, it is undeniable that some things I have read simply are not true. Books are edited , even the true stories to make them more attractive, they change the title and the punch line, they add and delete for effect sake. The BIBLE was not edited, it is the true word of the living God. I recently learned some new things about beliefs I held my entire life only to find out there was no truth in what I was believing. (I quote) The BIBLE is not for the faint of heart - it is full of all the greed and glory and violence and tenderness and sex and betrayal that befits mankind. It is not a collection of pretty little anecdotes mouthed by pious little church mice - it does not so much nibble at our shoe leather as it cuts to the heart and splits the marrow to the bone. It does not give us answers fitted to our small minded questions, but truth that goes beyond what we even know to ask.
