"Since printing press was invented in the mid-14th century Bible has always remained the best seller in the world. That is not the reason why we esteem the Bible. We esteem it because it is the life giving WORD of God. We all know that the word ‘Bible’ means collection of books or library of books. Bible is therefore a library of 66 books by about 40 different authors from different ages, cultures and languages, written over a period of 1500 years running over 1000 pages depending upon the language, the version, and the font size. Yet one can read from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation as if it was a single book – as if it is a single story. How is it possible for such a collection of books with such diversity of authors, cultures, backgrounds, languages, and time periods to read like a single narration unless there is something gloriously miraculous about it? This, among many others, is unique about this library and a marvel with no parallel anywhere in the world.
One question that keeps bothering many is, is the Bible really the Word of God. Let me, at the outset, rattle you by saying the answer is both a yes and a no. Before you jump to conclusions and castigate me as a blasphemer read further.." writes Philip Pereira.
