The Bible is widely considered to be the best selling book of all time. 

Former British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin said, "The Bible is high explosive.
But it works in strange ways and no living man can tell or know how that book, in its journey through the world, has startled the individual soul in ten thousand different places into a new life, a new world, a new belief,
a new conception, a new faith
."

'From somewhere I got the desire to read the Bible again.....
...I came to the gospels. In the New Testament I suddenly discovered the way that life should be followed

'The Bible Jesus Read' - by Philip Yancey 
'If you think the Old Testament is a mysterious, outdated book, think again! It is the Bible that Jesus read, used and loved. It is the story of God's passionate encounters with people. It is also the story of Jesus, who came to answer the questions that troubled the ancient writers and still trouble us today. For expressing our deepest longings and voicing the full range of our lives and emotions, the Old Testament has no equal.'
Philip Yancy explores these sometimes shocking, often cryptic divine writings. You will come to know God more intimately, anticipate Jesus more fervently, and find a wonderful, wise companion for your faith journey.
