Do we take the Bible for granted?

Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

One recent morning, one of our students had a strong prompting that she should take her Bible to school. She put it in her book bag, and as she began every class, she’d open her book bag and glance at her Bible. As she started her last class, this time she took her Bible out of her bag.

Immediately, a student sitting next to her asked, “Is that a Bible? May I please see it? My parents will not allow me to have a Bible. I would love to look at it for a moment.”

This student from Southeast Asia held the Bible in her hands for the first time, and was so grateful to get to quickly scan it. Read More»
