Remarkable Remarks - The Word of God

Josif Trifa - Romania: "A christian without a bible is like a soldier without a gun."

Russian Christian after receiving his first Bible: "The more I read, the more I want to read."

Another Russian Christian after receiving a Bible: "I could go to prison for having this book, but this book can also set men free."

Koran: "God forbid that He should have a son!" (Sura 4:172).

Bible: "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
