Bible Survival


"This one book (the Bible), just the smallest part of what is known as the literature of the world, has attracted to it and had concentrated upon it vastly more thought, and has called forth more works, explanatory, illustrative, apologetic, upon its text, its meaning, its exegesis, its doctrines, its geography, its ethnology, its chronology, its evidences, its inspiration, its origin, than all the rest of the literature of the world put together. An immense bulk of the world’s literature owes its origin to this book.
"In addition to the great multitudes of books in favor of the Bible, there are great numbers against it, attempting to refute its teachings and overthrow its claims, denying its truth, denouncing its doctrines, opposing its influence, directly and indirectly, and correcting its followers. If they could all be collected from the earliest times to the present day, they would make a library of no inconsiderable size.
"If they could all be collected into such a library and then a little center table could be moved in and the Bible placed on it, no more astonishing exhibit could be made of the power of the Bible. Shelf after shelf, tier after tier, room after room, floor after floor, of books written to prove that one small Book untrue, dead, mistaken and of no particular use or value; and still all that has been written is not yet considered to be enough, but other books of a similar nature are being produced today with a feverish haste to destroy the influence of the Bible.
"And all the while the Book itself has never answered back, never taken its own part, never made any explanation or rejoinder. It passes along the ages in majestic silence, saying not one thing except that which it has always said, speaking no word but what it has always spoken, taking no notice of the tumult it creates, taking no part in the controversies it arouses.
"But it survives both friends and foes, and continues to give its testimony through the passing centuries. Its enemies die, pass away and are forgotten. It lives and grows in power".

- Carlyle B. Haynes
