THE UNIQUENESS OF THE BIBLE
- Mahatma Gandhi
“God did not write a book
and send it by messenger
to be read at a distance by
unaided minds. He spoke a
Book and lives in His
spoken words, constantly
speaking His words,
constantly speaking His
words and causing the
power of them to persist
across the years” – A. W. Tozer
