Today is the International Day of the Bible. Listen to Elder Ballard's counsel on the Bible, and share it on Facebook and twitter with the hashtag #BibleCelebration
"My brothers and sisters, the Holy Bible is a miracle! It is a miracle
that the Bible’s 4,000 years of sacred and secular history were recorded
and preserved by the prophets, apostles, and inspired churchmen.
It is a miracle that we
have the Bible’s powerful doctrine, principles, poetry, and stories.
But most of all, it is a wonderful miracle that we have the account of
the life, ministry, and words of Jesus, which was protected through the
Dark Ages and through the conflicts of countless generations so that we
may have it today.
It is a miracle that the Bible literally
contains within its pages the converting, healing Spirit of Christ,
which has turned men’s hearts for centuries, leading them to pray, to
choose right paths, and to search to find their Savior.
Holy Bible is well named. It is holy because it teaches truth, holy
because it warms us with its spirit, holy because it teaches us to know
God and understand His dealings with men, and holy because it testifies
throughout its pages of the Lord Jesus Christ." (The Miracle of the Holy Bible, available at https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2007/04/the-miracle-of-the-holy-bible )
