Popes, presidents, peasants, poets. Saints, sinners, scientists, singers. The famous and infamous. The wise and the wisecracking. From ancient scrolls to yesterday’s newspapers. All have had something to say about the Bible.    

444 Surprising Quotes About the Bible represents years of careful culling by Isabella Bunn, an  Oxford-based scholar who has produced a remarkable compilation of reactions to the Word of God.

The Bible is the greatest bestseller of all time, both because of its contents and its impact. This treasury of inspiring thoughts and classic quotations underscores how Scripture:

  • Encourages Faith
  • Provides Instruction
  • Illuminates Christ
  • Reveals Truth
  • Inspires the Imagination
  • Shapes Civilizations
  • Endures Challenges

“As in Paradise, God walks in Scripture, seeking man.”—St. Ambrose (c.339-397) Bishop of Milan and Church Father
