RULES FOR READING
BIBLE AND THE BELIEVER
By DR. G. F. PENTECOST.
What it is and What it Does.
THE Bible is not a book to be studied as we study geology and astronomy, merely to find out about the earth's formation anti the structure of the universe;
but it is a book revealing truth, designed to bring us 'into living union with God. Scientific knowledge, and I, the words in which that knowledge is conveyed, have
no power to change our characters, to make us better, or give us a living hope of a blessed immortality ; but .the Word of God has in it -a vital power, it is " quick and powerful"-living and full of Divine energy (Heb. 4. T2)-and when received with meekness into our understanding and heart is able to save our souls (Jas. 1:18,21).
