Many of the Founders of this nation, cherished, respected, and esteemed the Bible. You know Patrick Henry from his quote, “Give me liberty or give me death,” but he also described the Bible as “A book worth more than all the other books that were ever printed.” America’s second president John Adams wrote in a letter to Thomas Jefferson that “the Bible is the best book in the world. It contains more of my little philosophy than all the libraries I have seen.” In a letter to his eldest son, John Jay, first chief justice of the UnitedStates, wrote:“The Bible is the best of all books. . .continue therefore to read it, and to regulate your life by its precepts.” Engage with the Bible. And it’s impact on history, culture, and art. Brought to you by Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C
