On one hand, the Bible is a slow read. On the other hand, it has everything – poetry, stories of adventure, cleverness, succeed, failure, and a fair amount of sex and violence.
But that’s not why I like it.
When I read the news on the internet I get angry, depressed, upset and frustrated.
When I read the Bible, I always find at least something that applies to me – to make me a little better or a little wiser.
It’s not by accident that the word “gospel” means “Good News.”
