Bible read me 2Incredibly, this gem came from an atheist commenting on a Telegraph article about Good Friday:

I would encourage all Christians to not just read their Bibles (and so few of you do) but also to learn more about the historicity of your God and the scriptures written on his behalf. This comment is not meant to challenge your faith by the way – simply that I, regardless of my atheism, have found it to be a fascinating exploration and I suspect that many Christians would be similarly interested.

Yes, Christians do owe it to themselves — and their offspring — to read Holy Scripture regularly in order to find out more about our religious heritage and God our Father’s plan for humanity’s redemption.

Yes, the Bible is a fascinating history.

Yes, Christians would be ‘similarly interested’ if they read it.

So, why don’t we?
