My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Today is the day I join those who can hold their head up and look you straight in the eye and say, “I have read the Holy Bible cover to cover. Every word.” This means a great deal to me because when I was a child I often studied the passages within and I have always longed to read the entire Bible. Of all the books I have read, I am glad to include this one.
My mother and father gave me a blue Bible for Christmas in 1988. I have carried this book from country to country. But before my journey abroad in 2006, I began reading the Bible on August 8, 2005 and now have completed it these long eight years on May 19, 2013.
The Bible is not an easy read by any means, but the things we have to work at, have to toil at, have to struggle to do are the things that often matter the most and have the most reward.
A strong recommend for all. God bless.
