The Greatest Book That Was Ever Written

We have bestsellers now and then. There are classics, thrillers, mysteries, inspirational, fantasies, science fiction, book of world records, self help books, all kinds of books that became best sellers one time or another. But after some time, they fade away and are forgotten. The greatest book and bestseller of all time is the Bible containing God's words. They were written by more than 40 authors, written in the span of more than 1,600 years. They are an amalgam of individual books compiled together in a single masterpiece. It has been translated into all languages and dialects all over the world. It survived the ravages of time and the assault of the enemies of God. It has words of truth written all over it. And although written by different authors who do not always know each other, their prophecies were fulfilled in subsequent books with uncanny accuracies. Almost all the prophecies written in the Old Testament were fulfilled in the times of Jesus Christ in the New Testament. The only prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled are the prophecies concerning the end times or the second coming of Christ. Even with the presence of inconsistencies and doublets in the Old Testament, testament to the different authorship and revisions by different editors, the Bible remains steadfast and true, testament to the infallible influence and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And God's words are very powerful and effective tools in our walk through life with all the trials and temptations surrounding man. They never change or fade away because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Hi Hobo,
Thank you so much for your profound quotation. I appreciate that. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.

Hi Cordieb,
Suddenly you made me go for my Bible to see 1Corinthians 13, hehehe, lol. I finally realized that it was about love. But for me (I am stating my own point of view here), the greatest love of all is the love of God for men for He sacrificed His own beloved Son to save perishing humanity. So the greatest love that man can ever express is his love for God. All other loves and expressions of love just emanate from this all consuming love. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless.
