Prominent Personalities Express their Views on the Bible

Dr. Cosmas Maduka, Founder,
Coscharis Group

“The greatest book that is greater than any human intellect is God’s word, the Scripture, because it is written by inspiration. Prophets of God spoke God’s thoughts not man’s words. Sometimes they themselves did not understand what they were saying but by inspiration they said it.”

Samuel Colgate Founder,

“The only spiritual light in the world comes through Jesus Christ and the inspired Book…without His presence and the teachings of the Bible, we would be enshrouded in moral darkness and despair.”

John Jay
First Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court and second President of the American Bible Society

“In forming and settling my belief relative to the doctrines of Christianity, I adopted no articles from creeds but such only as, on careful examination, I found to be confirmed by the Bible.”

Abraham Lincoln
16th US President

“In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Saviour gave to the world was communicated through this Book. But for this Book, we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it.”

Immanuel Kant
German Scholar & Philosopher

“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.”

Horace Greeley
American Journalist and Editor

“It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible-reading people.”

“The Bible is God’s chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea, and to show you where the harbor is, and how to reach it without running on the rocks or bars.”

Olusegun Obasanjo
African Statesman & Former Nigerian President

“God reveals himself to us in a number of ways, but the most significant way in which we get the revelation of God is in the Holy Bible…without the Bible, we will be lost.”

Ronald Reagan
40th US President

“Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.”
