From the 1991 Prayer Booklet published by United Bible Societies, Reading, England
"Why do illiterate people want to read? The first answer I get ... is 'I want to read the Bible'. The Bible! That stuns me ... partly because I am an agnostic ... but I always find it moving. It touches me deeply when these people who have so many other needs in life state that they want to read the Bible. Sometimes it is a religious longing. Sometimes the Bible stands for history, for an answer to the eternal questions all of us ask: 'Who am I, where do I come from, where do I?'"
—Jonathan Kozol, American literacy expert.
