But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The faith once for all handed down to the saints is one in which the gift of reading plays a significant part. God has chosen to reveal Himself through the written word — the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is His inspired, inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient word. That, in and of itself, is enough for...
