The Bible is the most read book in the world. It has had an incredible impact on cultures around the world.
Its teachings have provided the basis for English law, the American Bill of Rights, and the constitutions of great democracies, such as the United Kingdom, the USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
The Bible’s message has changed lives all through history. Jesus changed the life of Peter and Paul. The Bible’s teachings about salvation through repentance and faith in Jesus changed the lives of Martin Luther and Charles Wesley, who went on to teach many people about Jesus. Tribal groups in the Philippines were delivered from fear, and former cannibals in Papua New Guinea now live in peace, all because of the gospel. Muslims, Hindus, and atheists have been changed by the message of God’s Word.
The Bible has also provided the basis for many great works of art. Famous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and Raphael, painted many scenes from the Bible.
Musicians including Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Brahms all composed music based on biblical themes.
The impact the Word of God has had on the world is truly incredible and unique. There is no other book like it.
