Yes, I am a Christian. However, this article is not only about my faith. It is mainly about a book that I have found very useful and I would love to introduce it to you, whether you are a Christian or not.
Many people will naturally disagree with me because of their various values or backgrounds. That is the way it should be when diverse perspectives are involved.
The Holy Bible is not only a spiritual book, it is God’s manual for us to know how to live and flourish. That means you can find it useful spiritually, economically, financially, politically, academically, and in many other aspects.
In 2015, I was invited (as a speaker) to Littworld, a World Conference of Christian Publishing, in Singapore, organized by Media Associates International. I got a ground breaking idea from the Holy Bible during my pre- conference research. That idea is now central in all my activities. Infact, my approach on how to reach the world has completely changed and enhanced.
Moreover, yesterday, 15-June- 2019 marked another discovery moment from the Holy Bible. I sat in my car and brainstormed on fresh ideas on how to do publishing. I had two books with me: The Holy Bible and a business book written by a billionaire. It was the Holy Bible that provided the key fresh ideas I need. That is not to say other books are useless. They are not. They have their roles in the master plan. They have the authors’ experiences and insights about many biblical principles whether they know it or not.
Loren Cunningham (with Janice Rogers) have summarised in a wonderful way (on the back cover page) of their book, titled, THE BOOK THAT TRANSFORMS NATIONS. “No country is too hard, too poor, too filled with crime, too divided by war, or too spiritually dark to be changed. God has given us basic principles that are keys to every problem we face in the twenty-first century. The answers lie between the covers of one book- the Bible.”
I really don’t want to be selfish. I don’t want to find or have a very useful book and hide it. That is why I highly recommend the Holy Bible to you. Sentiment aside if possible. Try it for yourself and see.
