The bible is a one of a kind book of books. All the books are categorised into two testaments; the old testament books and the new testament books. Together they chart God’s history with His creation. We get an insight into eternity before time began; then a clear narration of events occurring within “time” (days, months, years, decades, generations, centuries); and an explanation of what eternity – after time has ended – will be like.
When you read the bible you are not only reading history, you are reading life. Now if you have never read the bible, be prepared for no-holds-barred, graphic detail about real people, real events and how they managed those events – whit and without God.
There is no sugar-coating, form the early chapters you will read about jealousy, murder, greed, theft and through all that mayhem, how God persevered with His creation – its an awesome account.
The mystery of this book is itself a miracle – how did this book survive and how on reading it eyes are opened, lives are made free. This I believe is what continues to make bible the most read book in the entire world.
