The Bible is an Extremely Dangerous book

This is what the Pope has written to young people in a prologue to a new youth bible launched this week in Germany. He shares his personal relationship with his old, worn out bible and reveals that he would not swap it for anything in the world.
You can read the prologue in full be clicking here.

As today is Bible Sunday we had a book stall in church selling Bible and Bible reading notes.

Gandhi said: “You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilization to pieces, turn the world upside down, and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of literature.”

May we be faithful in our reading of the bible and may it constantly challenge and inspire us.
