A Word About the Author – Second Peter


William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare

In the pages of a book I’ve met great men and women of history, traveled to places I’ve only ever dreamed, and learned facts and truths completely new. If only I had the ability to sit down with some of these authors personally I could ask them questions, hear them read their own works, and listen as they explain the whys and hows of what they wrote.

Imagine hearing William Shakespeare explain Hamlet’s statement, “To be, or not to be: that is the question.” What about Mary Shelley reading her sensitive story of self-discovery called Frankenstein. The faces Dr Seuss would make reading The Cat in the Hat. What special insights and understanding you could receive from the authors themselves!

You have an amazing opportunity every time you read the Bible. It’s called “God’s Word” because God gave the words to men to write. He reveals amazing events of history, the emotions of heroes, and the spectacle of future events better than any human author has ever known anything. Best of all, when you read the Scriptures, God reveals Himself on every page.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God … for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit  (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
