The World's Greatest Book by Ernest Easley

The World's Greatest Book
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
2 Timothy 3.16-17

We're thinking tonight about The World's Greatest Book. And of course I'm referring to the Bible: the Word of God. God never intended for us to simply endure His word .. but rather to enjoy His word. Written over a 1500 year span and covered more than 40 human generations .. written by more than 40 different authors from every walk of life (fisherman, poets, shepherds, kings, tax collectors, doctor, scholars, military leaders, political officials and more.

This book that I hold in my hand is truly The World's Greatest Book and in our time together .. I want to show you what makes it The World's Greatest Book. And it's my hope and prayer … that when you walk out of here in a few minutes .. that you will determine to make The World's Greatest Book .. your book of choice as well as your book of convictions.

God breathed through the writers of scripture the very words He wanted us ...
