The Bible

“Infidels for eighteen hundred years have been refuting and overthrowing this book, and yet [it] stands today as solid as a rock.  Its circulation increases and it is more loved and cherished and read today than ever before. Infidels, with all their assaults, make about as much impression on this book as a man with a tack hammer would on the Pyramids of Egypt. 

“When the French monarch proposed the persecution of the Christians in the dominion, an old statesman and warrior said to him, ‘Sire, the Church of God is an anvil that has worn out many hammers.’ So the hammers of infidels have been pecking away at this book for ages, but the hammers are worn out, and that anvil still endures.  If this book had not been the book of God, men would have destroyed it long ago.  Emperors and popes, kings and priests, princes and rulers have all tried their hand at it; they die and the book still lives.”

~H.L. Hastings, as quoted by John Lea, The Greatest Book in the World.
