The Author

When I became a Christian at the age of 17, I was given a Bible by my Church.  It was my first.  I underlined or highlighted everything that “spoke” to me in those early days of my faith.  Since it was all new and inspirational, that was pretty much everything I read.  It got so worn from use that it eventually just fell apart.  I love the quote from the Prince of Preachers, Charles Spurgeon, “A Bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”  Ain’t that the truth.

I’ve had a relationship with a Bible every since the first one I got from Newcomb Baptist Church.  Of course, it’s really a relationship with the Word of God, bound together in a particular cover.  It’s the message, not the medium, that’s kept my life from completely falling apart.

​The primary purpose of having a relationship with the Bible is not necessarily to know the scriptures, but rather to know, and be, in relationship with the Author.
