Last week we stressed how important it is for believers to be in the Bible, but this week we want to stress how important it is even for those who are not Christians to read it. So first we deal with some of the basic reasons people have for not reading the Bible; then we consider what some leading Americans have said about the importance of the Bible to our country. Finally, we consider some ways those who are new to the Bible may begin to read it, for example, by starting with Proverbs, or with Psalm 23.
