The Bible: Part 2: Uniqueness


One of the greatest arguments for Christianity is the Bible itself. There is no other book like the Bible. Immanuel Kant who for the most part rejected Christianity said this of the Bible, ‘The existence of the Bible, as a book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced. Every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity.’ The Bible has fallen upon hard times and is seen as refuted, as a set of myths, as a collection of politically motivated books to suit the governing power, as merely a record of the religious life of a group of people from the Middle East. However, it has made more of an impact than any other book. In this message I just want to skim over some of the astounding facts about the Bible. We have heard a lot of bad press, my purpose in this message is to paint a very different picture of the wonder of the bible than the one we usually hear.
