AN ODE TO THE BOOK OF BOOKS
Favourite Book is the Bible. The Author, Men as moved by the Spirit of God.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. The Book of Hebrews …
The bible is the most complete book in the world. It is a book of books. It is interesting to note that the modern printing press had its first publication as the bible. And since then it has continued to advance generations after generations.
It is the bestseller of all times, it is the most vilified yet most dignified book ever written.
It was written by at least 40 men at different times and in different places.
It has been translated to over 2000 languages and counting,
It is the source of wisdom, it is the definition of knowledge it is the giver of understanding.
It talks about the beginning of the world and chronicles the end of the universe.
It is the greatest love story ever told,
It depicts how uncannily humanity is kept preserved, spared, protected and dutifully pampered in God’s hand.
No other book is
intentionally written or
Science only agrees with its findings, philosophers only re-echo its admonitions, peoples of nations only confirm its history of creation.
It laws determine all legal systems, its contents touch on all aspects of human existence, its principles stand the test of time.
It is the light that blazing keeps us from the darkness of the world.
It comforts the comfortless,
blesses the cursed,
quenches the storms of life,
gives hope in hopelessness,
gives a purpose to the purposeless and
the only thread that connects every single 7 billion people on the earth,
that we are God’s Children.
It is sharper than the sharpest sword, faster than the speed of light and contains more information than all the resources on the world wide web.
It needs no vote of confidence to be accepted,
does not require any review by
Wall Street Journal,
or Business week,
yet it is sold, given, manufactured, interpreted, preached, celebrated every nanosecond of everyday.
IT does not need a special feature on
yet it attracts more viewership than all over those combined together.
The Bible is impossibly unfathomable
It can not be ignored,
It is simply indescribable and certainly indispensable.
It is the pathfinder of new findings, the trailblazer of new civilizations,
the trendsetter of new technologies,
the waymaker of unknown unknowns.
It talks about known knowns,
it shows unknown knows,
it opens up known unknowns and
carries the secrets of unknown unknowns.
It treasures are richer than the pyramids of Egypts,
more magnicient than the Great Pyramids of Giza or the Statue of Zeus,
more enthralling than the hanging gardens of Babylon or the Maudoleum at Halicarnassus ,
more sanctimonious than the Temple of Artemis,
more collosal than the colossus of Rhodes,
and blazing brighter than the lighthouse of Alexandria.
It elicits a desire more surreal than a Night at the Taj Mahal,
more indescribable than the grandiloquence of the Chichen Itza,
more symbolic than the O Cristo Redentor,
more awe inspiring than the Roman Colosseum,
more breath taking than the Great Wall of China,
more sacred than the Manchu Oicchu and
indeed more enigmatic than the Petra.
When the blind read it they see,
when the dumb speak about it their tongue is loosed,
when the dumb here it they receive hearings,
when the sick speak of its truth they are restored,
when the poor obey its commands, they are made rich,
when nations return to it, they become super powers.
The bible is beyond compare,
it is beyond a class,
it can not be categorized,
there is no field of human endeavour that does not have its source in the bible.
The first Surgery in the world is Chronicled there,
the first language separation is written there,
the first religions of the world has its root there,
technology advancement has its source there.
It never witnessed twitter yet the creator has more followers than any twitter user.
It never witnessed the dawn of facebook, yet more people Face The Book than Facebook.
It never witnessed Google, yet the Spirit of God inspired men to speak about unknown regions and prove invisible facts.
Even Yet at the end of it all
the Bible is simple to understand, easy to read, elementary to assimilate
and a means for inspiration, instruction, correction and admonition of worlds without end,
It is Simply
