It has been said the Bible is the best-selling book of all time. Many buy it, but what do they do with it? At the same time, when you review history, the Bible could be considered the most hated book of all time, as there are many who have tried to suppress it and destroy it. Today, it is readily available but taken for granted and even looked upon with disdain by the general population. Might we let the attitude of society affect our attitude toward God’s Word?
