The Bible is the most attacked and maligned book ever. Like a champion heavyweight fighter, God’s word has taken punch after punch, round after vicious round, and yet remains standing at the end of the fight.
In the eighteenth century, a French philosopher and atheist named Voltaire boastfully declared the demise of the Bible. “Another century and there will not be a Bible on earth!” he predicted. Oh really?
The last time I checked, the Bible is still the best-selling book ever and Voltaire is a fading memory. Believe it or not, his house was later used as the headquarters of the International Bible Society. Now that's what I call a knockout punch.
