William Jennings Bryan and the Bible

William Jennings Bryan was one of the most popular and respected orators in U.S. History. He was born in Illinois in 1860 and was the Democrat party's candidate for President in 1896, 1900, and 1908. He became Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State. He said this about the Holy Bible:

"No matter from what standpoint we view it, or by what standard we measure it, the Bible merits the title 'The Book of Books.'"

As found on page 528 of Organized Sunday school work in America, 1908-1911: triennial ..., Volume 13, By International Sunday-School Association
