Exploring the Bible

With the plethora of books published each year, telling readers how to get on in contemporary life, why would people feel they need to read the Bible?

Perhaps it's because the Book of books speaks to individuals just where they are, regardless of environment, educational advantage, or age. It satisfies their inarticulate but deep spiritual hunger, their craving to know God and something of man's role in the wider scheme of things.

Whatever the cultural gaps and hurdles for twentieth-century readers, still when we open this remarkable book, we come face to face with God, Spirit. From the New Testament we learn that God is real and good—a loving Parent who instructs and tenderly cares for His universal family. As we explore the narrative, we meet those who learned, slowly and painfully at times, that putting God, Principle, first in their lives and obeying His commandments bring unimagined joy. It didn't matter whether they were kings or paupers, shepherds, slaves, prophets, or fishermen, when they worshiped and served God wholeheartedly, they found newness of life under even the most severe conditions and circumstances.
