OUR DAY, In the Light of Prophecy
By W.A. SPICER
THE BOOK THAT SPEAKS TO OUR DAY Man may write a true book, but only God, the source of life, can write a living book. The word of God ... liveth and abideth forever. 1 Peter 1:23. The Bible is the living word of God. We look at the volume; we hold it in our hands. It is like other books in form and printer's art. But the voice of God speaks from these pages, and the word spoken is alive. It is able to do in the heart that receives it what can be done only by divine power. The Book That Talks Far in the heart of Africa a missionary read to the people in their own language from the translated Word of God. See! they cried; see! the book talks! The white man has a book that talks! With that simplicity of speech so common to children of nature, they had exactly described it. This is a book that talks.
