If an uninterested spectator, after a careful perusal of the New Testament, were asked what he conceived to be its distinguishing characteristic, he would reply without hesitation, "That wonderful spirit of philanthropy by which it is distinguished." It is a perpetual commentary on that sublime aphorism, "God is love."
      - Robert Hall

The Bible is the treasure of the poor, the solace of the sick, and the support of the dying; and while other books may amuse and instruct in a leisure hour, it is the peculiar triumph of that book to create light in the midst of darkness, to alleviate the sorrow which admits of no other alleviation, to direct a beam of hope to the heart which no other topic of consolation can reach; while guilt, despair, and death vanish at the touch of its holy inspiration.
      - Robert Hall

What other book besides the Bible could be heard in public assemblies from year to year, with an attention that never tires, and an interest that never cloys?
      - Robert Hall

The Bible is not only the revealer of the unknown God to man, but His grand interpreter as the God of nature. In revealing God it has given us the key that unlocks the profoundest mysteries of creation, the clew by which to thread the labyrinth of the universe, the glass through which to look from nature up to nature's God.
      - Leroy Jones Halsey

The Bible is a treasure. It contains enough to make us rich for time and eternity. It contains the secret of happy living. It contains the key of heaven. It contains the title-deeds of an inheritance incorruptible, and that fadeth not away. It contains the pearl of great price. Nay, in so far as it reveals them as the portion of us sinful worms, it contains the Saviour and the living God Himself.
      - James Hamilton

The word of God is solid; it will stand a thousand readings; and, the man who has gone over it the most frequently and the most carefully is the surest of finding new wonders there.
      - James Hamilton

The Scriptures were written, not to make us astronomers, but to make us saints.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

This book of stars lights to eternal bliss.
      - George Herbert

All human discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more strongly the truths come from on high, and contained in the sacred writings.
      - Sir William Herschel (f/k/a Friedrich Wilhelm Herschel)

God in tender indulgence to our different dispositions; has strewed the Bible with flowers, dignified it with wonders, and enriched it with delight.
      - James Hervey

Every leaf is a spacious plain; every line a flowing brook; every period a lofty mountain.
      - James Hervey, A Descant Upon Creation

The best evidence of the Bible's being the word of God is to be found between its covers. It proves itself.
      - Charles Hodge (2)

All that has been done to weaken the foundation of an implicit faith in the Bible, as a whole, has been at the expense of the sense of religious obligation, and at the cost of human happiness.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

O Word of God incarnate . . .
  It is the golden casket
    Where gems of truth are stored;
      It is the heaven-drawn picture
        Of Thee, the Living Word.
      - William Walsham How

The Bible is common-sense inspired.
      - Rees Howells

Let your daughter have first of all the book of Psalms for holiness of heart, and be instructed in the Proverbs of Solomon for her godly life.
      - Saint Jerome (Eusebius Hieronymus Sophronius, called Hieronymus)

If God is a reality, and the soul is a reality, and you are an immortal being, what are you doing with your Bible shut?
      - Herrick Johnson

It is not simply a theological treatise, a code of laws, a religious homily, but the Bible--the book--while the only book for the soul, the best book for the mind.
      - Herrick Johnson

The Bible is the most thought-suggesting book, in the world. No other deals with such grand themes.
      - Herrick Johnson

The Bible is to religion what the Iliad is to poetry.
      - Joseph Joubert

When you read the sacred Scriptures, or any other book, never think how you read, but what you read.
      - John P. Kemble

If thou desire to profit, read with humility, simplicity, and faithfulness; nor even desire the repute of learning.
      - Thomas a Kempis

Other books we may read and criticise. To the Scriptures we must bow the entire soul, with all its faculties.
      - Edward N. Kirk

Christianity claims that the supernatural is as reasonable as the natural, that man himself is supernatural as truly as he is natural, and that the Bible is so clearly the word of God by proofs that are unanswerable, that it is unreasonable to disbelieve its divine truths.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge

Parents, I urge you to make the Bible the sweetest, the dearest book to your children; not by compelling them to read so many chapters each day, which will have the effect of making them hate the Bible, but by reading its pages with them, and by your tender parental love, so showing them the beauty of its wondrous incidents, from the story of Adam and Eve to the story of Bethlehem and Calvary, that no book in the home will be so dear to your children as the Bible; and thus you will be strengthening their minds with the sublimest truths, storing their hearts with the purest love, and sinking deep in their souls solid principles of righteousness, whose divine stones no waves of temptation can ever move.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge
