Writer's Block: Best book ever!

Is there any book you can read over and over again without ever getting sick of it? Do you discover something new every time you read it?

 

Is there a book I could read over and over again without ever tiring of it?

Oh, my goodness, yes! And, let me tell you about this book…

This is no ordinary book.

When I read it, it’s as if the words are alive and they leap right off the page into my heart.

Here’s some crazy facts about the book…

most shoplifted book in the world

largest seller of all books published

written over the span of 1600 years by more than 40 authors including shepherds, fishermen, and kings

written from three continents-Asia, Africa, Europe

WARNING: This book has the power to change your life.
  • Despair can turn to hope.
  • Depression can turn to joy.
  • Foolishness can turn to wisdom.
  • Pride can turn to humility.
  • Hatred can turn to love.
  • Death can turn to life.

It is filled with great mysteries, yet is simple enough for even a child to understand.

What’s the name of this book?

The Bible.

“The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature, with a power that conquers all that oppose it.” --Napoleon

I didn't realize Napoleon had said that. Interesting post with interesting facts. Gives me things to think about. I like it.

He also said this...

"Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires; but what foundation did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.” - Napoleon Bonaparte

Was Napoleon a Christian?

About the Bible - isn't it a wonderful book of personal letters as well as letters to the masses? The one thing i find so completely interesting is that I really do rest my eternity based upon its truth as do many others. I'm not sure there is another book quite like it.

I'm not sure if Napoleon was a Christian, but it sounds like he had time for some serious reflection about truth while he was in exile.
