    It has been reported for about 50 years that the Bible has been the largest seller of all books published in the history of the world.

    The Bible was written by about 40 men in about 1600 years, dating from 1500 B.C. to about 100 A.D. These men wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Pet. 1:21). They wrote not in words of human wisdom but in words taught by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 2:13).

    the bible is our road map to heaven for those who believe in it

  • joe b says:

    All scripture has already been written and no more will follow.

    Heb 1

    1In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

    there is a reason God does not help on earth. Read the Bible for answers or go to http://themeaningoflife.com

  • Jesus Gomez says:

    The Bible is the Word of God handed down to us so that we will know what the Truth is. God did many things to show us that he was with us while the Bible was being written. He did those things so they could be documented and all others would know He exist. You can push him away, but He planted a seed in your heart to let you know He is with you, so there is no such thing as a real atheist. You can not honestly not believe in God.

    Some people feel that the Bible is all that needs to be said…

  • erchnic says:

    There are plenty of contemporary books about God. They just haven’t found you yet….. You need to open your mind a little:

    “Ask and it shall be given to you,
    Seek and you shall find,
    Knock and it shall opened unto you…” Matthew 7:7

  • lonewolf says:

    Son our book is the bible ! The bible is the inspired word of God.”Basic instructions before leaving Earth” ! B.I.B.L.E. According to the scriptures we are living in the final stage before Jesus Christ will return and set up his eternal kingdom.He will not step in until mankind is to the point of destroying his planet. Heaven then will come down to be on Earth. Those who have accepted Jesus into their hearts will live forever with him on Earth. The rest will be thrown into the lake of fire with their father the devil !

  • By Faith says:

    The Bible is God’s Word to man. It reveals the plan of God for all of mankind. It reveals the nature of God, the sinfulness of man, the plan of salvation in Christ, the prospects of heaven for the saved, the doom of the unsaved in hell, guidelines for the Christian to follow in order to live and act as he should. It is God’s word to US. It is the most important object we have on this earth. We are to love it, learn it, and then live by it.

    HOW WE GOT THE BIBLE

    God has communicated with man in many different ways. Men like Joseph of the Old Testament was spoken to through dreams. Daniel also had dreams from God. Men like Isaiah and Ezekiel had visions from the Lord. Normally in the Old Testament God spoke to people through His prophets, the preachers of that day.

    But today, in New Testament times, God speaks only through His Word, the Bible. Hebrews 1:1-2 tells us that God spoke in many different ways in the Old Testament, but has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, who is called in the Bible, THE WORD OF GOD. (SEE John 1:1 and Revelations 19:13) God no longer chooses to speak through dreams or visions, but through the Bible.

    God used some 40 men over several hundred years to record His word. God supervised His writing through these men of God. Even though men are not perfect, God did not allow these men to make errors when recording His word for the generations to follow. The Holy Spirit directed these men. It was not just their ideas and thoughts. 2 Peter says in l:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” Every word and every thought in the Bible is put there and approved by God Himself.

    God has preserved His Word down through the years so we could have it to live by. The critics have tried to destroy it, but have failed. Matthew 24:35 says it will always stand, never to be done away with. God is the author of the Bible and He has given it to us.

    IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TO YOU

    God puts great emphasis on His Word. In fact, the longest chapter in the whole Bible (Psalm 119), speaks entirely about the Bible and its place in our life. God wants to talk with us and teach us. He cannot do this unless we read His Word. 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that all scripture is “inspired” of God and is profitable to us. This is called the doctrine of the “inspiration of Scripture”. It means every word that the writer wrote down was exactly what God wanted written. This is also called the doctrine of “verbal plenary inspiration”, or in other words every word was inspired of God and was without error.

    “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:17)

    Who will write our book? It is already written.
