The greatest story ever told isn’t the stories you hear or read on the news. In fact, it isn’t even the great fictional stories you have read in high school for a class assignment. What if I told you that the greatest story ever told is more than learning about the secret lives of individuals who possess a supernatural power and uses their power or “gift” to benefit humanity? What if I told you that the greatest story ever told deserves the intelligent consideration of all men and women in all walks of life? What if I told you the greatest story ever told is often a story taken into consideration when someone is at the end of their life or is going through a great deal of difficulty? While it is wonderful to have a book to read to find comfort in a time like that – there is nothing like This Book for you when it comes to the time to live!
This Book furnishes the only route through this world and on into the next world. It is the only Book that allows us to live the life full of vigor. It is the only Book that helps you face life today. This Book is the most controversial book ever written. No other books have been attacked as much as this Book has. It has ministered and healed literally millions of people around the globe…. and it has been doing so for several thousand years now.
President John Quincy Adams said it best, “I speak as a man of the world to men of the world; and I say to you: Search the Scriptures. The Bible is the book above all others to be read at all ages and in all conditions of human life; not to be read once or twice through then laid aside, but to be read in small portions every day. ” The Bible is a very human Book and it is also a God-Book. It was written by all men from all walks of life from the highly intellectual to the very simple. It is a Book that is both Divine and human. If history means anything, it was This Book that has influenced great men of the past who in turn have influenced the world around them. If you have a desire to understand the world and culture that surrounds you, you need to have a thorough understanding of the one Book that most influenced it.
Beyond that, the Bible is full of ancient counsel and advice that is applicable to any modern person, whether he’s a Jew, a Christian, or not religious at all. It is This Book alone that contains the mind of God (the revealed mind of the Creator), the state of man, and the way to salvation (restoration). Give it a try, you won’t regret it!
