Charles Colson - "The Bible – banned, burned, beloved.  More widely read, more frequently attacked than any other book in history. Generations of intellectuals have attempted to discredit it,  dictators of every age have outlawed it and executed those who read it.  Yet soldiers carry it into battle believing it more powerful than their weapons.  Fragments of it smuggled into solitary prison cells have transformed ruthless killers into gentle saints." 

Cecil B. DeMille - "After more than sixty years of almost daily reading of the Bible,  I never fail to find it always new and marvellously in tune with the changing needs of every day."
