After all these years, the Bible remains a best-selling book. For many, it is a source of life and inspiration. For some, it is a window through which the revelation of God shines. For others, it can be a smothering weight.
I can’t remember a time when I did not read the Bible. I still have my first Bible, which I received as a Christmas present when I was 5 years old. My name is written on the presentation page, in pencil, in my father’s handwriting. It is the only example I have of his handwriting. I cherish that Bible.
