What the Bible Is...Tutorial...

"Introduction to a New Testament Pocket Bible"

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of
salvation, the doom of sinners and the happiness of believers. Its
doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true,
and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy.
It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to
cheer you.

It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the
soldier's sword, and the Christians charter. Here Paradise is restored,
Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed.

Christ is the grand subject, our good design, and the glory of God its end.

It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it
slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise
of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given to you in life, will be
opened at the judgement, and be remembered forever. It involves the
highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn
all who trifle with its sacred contents."
