Theodore Roosevelt on the Bible

“If a man is not familiar with the Bible, he has suffered the loss which he had better make all possible haste to correct…. A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.”— Teddy Roosevelt

If we read the Bible aright, we read a book which teaches us to go forth and do the work of the Lord, to do the work of the Lord in the world as we find it; to try to make things better in this world, even if only a little better because we have lived in it…we plead for a closer and wider and deeper study of the Bible, so that our people may be in fact as well as in theory, doers of the Word and not hearers only.
