How many copies are sold and how that compares with the #1 best seller is irrelevant (Matt. 24:35). Many have tried to destroy the Bible. People like Matthew Henry have even predicted its disappearance.

It Will Save Your Soul

We Will Be Judged by It
If you were going to court tomorrow, would you want to know the terms by which you would be judged? Would you check them out—go to great expense to be informed?
