Signs of the Times

[From the Living Church, Milwaukee, Wisconsin]

It is an extraordinary thing that in an age when interest in education is uppermost the Bible should be to many an unopened book. In it is the record of the moral and spiritual culture of a people who had a peculiar genius for the moral and spiritual life. It contains much of the world's clearest thinking upon the problems of both individual and social life. It enshrines passages that equal or surpass anything in other literature. There is, further, scarcely a present human interest, unless we except certain fields of recent scientific achievement, which has not been so largely affected by the Bible that we cannot understand it apart from the Bible. The man with even a pretense of education and culture cannot afford not to know his Bible. He will be at a loss to understand much that enters into life around him, and which has fashioned the ideals and motives of the world's best men. More particularly is this true of the life of religion.
