Quotes About From The Bible

I therefore used the last ten minutes of our classes to recite with them words from the Bible and verses from hymns, so that they would know them and the words would stay with them throughout their lives.

I also tried to awaken in them a love for the Church, and a desire for that hour of spiritual peace to be found in the Sunday service.

The Bible is a wonderful book. It is the truth about the Truth. It is not the Truth. A sermon taken from the Bible can be a wonderful thing to hear. It is the truth about the truth about the truth.
