‘Bible’- The book that stands out at all times

The Bible 
by Rev. Fr. K.K. John

'Bible’- The book that stands out at all times.

“Be admonished: of making many books no end,” Eccl.12: 12.

We, living in a so called advanced age (computer age, space age and what next! You name it.), have seen numerous books and periodicals on technology, theology, sociology, science, literature, fictions, jokes, novels, romance, paperback, hard covers, commentaries, references and so on, and indubitably, a few people are influenced by each such publication. Some are listed as ‘best sellers,’ mostly depending on the fame of the author.

The curiosity of human mind for something new is never limited and always explores new heights and pastures and this, in turn, makes ‘once upon a time best seller’ the best-ignored books. In as much as there are no limits to the number of new books, the books that are forgotten in the course of time are also innumerable.

But one Book, ‘The Bible’, stands out at all times.
