The Influence of the Bible

The influence of the Bible and its teaching in the Western world is clear for all who study history.  And the influential role of the West in the course of world events is equally clear.  Civilization has been influenced more by the Judeo-Christian Scriptures than by any other book or series of books in the world.  Indeed, no great moral or religious work in the world exceeds the depth of morality in the principle of Christian love, and none has a more lofty spiritual concept than the biblical view of God.  The Bible presents the highest ideals known to men, ideals that have molded civilization.
