GOD'S MIRACLE BOOK, Part 1 (10 of 12)
Christianity for Dummies
Rev. Jim Henry, Pastor
Psalms 119:89-91, II Timothy 3:16

Have you ever seen a book that is a thousand
years of age? If you have it's a rarity. What I am
going to talk about is Latin. Some of you may have
taken Latin in school, been to medical school, or
something. Latin is kind of like that kid who had the
Latin class, and he was so frustrated with it that
when the teacher left, he wrote on the board, "Latin

said to his secretary, "Bring me the Book." She said,
"Which book, Sir." He said, "There's only one Book
for the dying and that is the Bible. Bring me the
Book." I would add a little word to that one: "There
is only one Book for the living, and that is the
