The Bible

(34 quotes)

When we pray, we talk to God; when we read Scripture, God talks to us.
Saint Isidore of Seville

The most overlooked part of the Bible, apologetically speaking, is the table of contents. It does more than just tell us the pages on which the constituent books begin. It tells us that the Bible is a collection of books, and that implies a Collector. The identity of the Collector is what chiefly distinguishes the Protestant from the Catholic.
Karl Keating
