Ronald Reagan on the Bible ~

Of the many influences that have shaped the Unite States of America into a distinctive nation & people, none may be said to be more fundamental and enduring then the Bible.  These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies--a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades.
For centuries, the Bible's emphasis on compassion and love for our neighbor has inspired institutional and governmental expressions of benevolent outreach.
In recognition of the contributions and influence of the Bible on our Republic and our people, I encourage all citizens, each in his or her own way, to reexamine and rediscover its priceless and timeless message.
"My experience in this office I hold has only deepened a belief I've held for many years:  Within the covers of this single Book are answers to the problems that face us today--if we'd only read and believe." ~President Ronald Reagan
