"In regard to the Great Book, I have only to say that it is the best gift which God has given to man. All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated to us through this book. But for this book, we could not know right from wrong. All those things to man are contained in it."
Abraham Lincoln, October 1864 when presented a Bible by a group of black people in Baltimore.
