The Bible is the Greatest book of wisdom and knowledge ever written and published. In fact, it is the most widely read book in the world, the most fiercely debated and the most often quoted book in history. Thus, the Bible is the Greatest book of all time. It is a collection of books that encompasses past or ancient stories, chronicles, teachings, laws, parables, proverbs, psalms, teachers, preachers, heroes, heroines, saints, kings, queens, prophecies, prophets, prophetesses, miracles, warnings, signs, wonders, mysteries, revelations (the past, present and future events collectively) and much more than that, including extraordinary insights or words of wisdom (encouragement) from Jesus Christ himself (the greatest teacher and inspirator of all time), king Solomon, king David, saint Paul among other ancient wise men and women. Billions of copies have been published and sold globally already. And many more copies will be published and sold sooner or later. In other words, the Bible has been read by the world as a whole. Even the posterity (all future generations ahead) will surely read the Bible. You can bet your bottom dollar. -Emeasoba George
