National Bible Week 2010

Holy Bible

National Bible Week has been observed during Thanksgiving week since 1941.

One of the things I’m most thankful for is the freedom to read and study God’s Word. National Bible Week is a reminder to use that freedom regularly.

I read the Bible daily, and I’ve written about National Bible  Week in previous years—20072008, and 2009—as well as a two-part series on reading the Bible.

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. ~ Romans 15:4, ESV

BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast, the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. ~ 1928 Book of Common Prayer, Collect for the Second Sunday in Advent
