The Bible and American Presidents

"A nation is made great by its people and its values, particularly by its leaders and the values they embrace.  It has been said that a nation rises and falls on its leadership.  Throughout the Bible, when ancient Israel had a king who reverenced God and held the Word of God in high esteem, the nations prospered.  When they had a bad king, life within the nation was full of misery.  American history is vividly clear that a faith in God and a reverence for the Bible provided the basis for the founding of our nation.  That same reverence for God by many of our presidents has had a profound impact on the greatness of our nation.  One fact is undeniable:  the Bible has been one of the greatest influences on American's presidents."  Quoted from The American Patriots's Bible, by Dr. Richard G. Lee

"The first and almost the only book deserving of universal attention is the Bible.  I speak as a man of the world...and I say to you, 'Search the Scriptures'." John Quincy Adams, Sixth President

"In regard for this Great Book, I have this to say, it is the best gift God has given to man.  All the good savior gave to the world was communicated through this book."   Abraham Lincoln, 16th President

"That Book, sir, is the Rock on which our Republic rests."   Andrew Jackson, 7th President

"The strength of our country is the strength of its religious convictions.  The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."  Calvin Coolidge, 30th President

"Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet anchor of your liberties.  Write its precepts in your hearts, and practice them in your lives.  To the influence of this Book are we indebted for all the progress made in true civilization, and to this we must look as our guide in the future.  Righteousness exhalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."   Ulysses S Grant, 18th President

"If you take out of your statutes, your constitution, your family life all that is taken from the Sacred Book, what would there be left to bind society together?"   Benjamin Harrison, 23rd President

"Inside the Bible's pages lie all the answers to all of the problems man has ever known...It is my firm belief that the enduring values presented in its pages have a great meaning for each of and for our nation.  The Bible can touch our hearts, order our minds, and refresh our souls.Ronald Reagan, 40th President
