>> BIBLE <<

The Bible is the bedrock of Christian belief, guided in its writing by the Spirit of God.  But the Bible has fallen on bad days in our culture, losing its respected place as the source of our knowledge of God.   Restoring the intellectual credibility of the Christian community will rest largely on restoring the Bible as a credible witness to the acts of God in history and to the giving of truth about who God is and what He plans for His creation.

Bibles in China --  From http://www.theblaze.com/stories/shocker-guess-which-country-is-the-largest-producer-of-bibles/   
     "When one thinks of China, Christianity, and the Bible are likely two of the furthest things that come to mind. “Communism,” “forced abortions,” one-child policy” and other terms are, more generally, what’s the nation is known for. But now, a shocking new development has come to the forefront: China, a country that makes many products consumed in the U.S. and abroad, is now also the world’s largest Bible producer.
     "Amity Printing Company is the only outfit in China that is permitted to produce Christian Bibles. While the Chinese government doesn’t have the most stellar record when it comes to religious freedom, Amity Printing has been fast at work, with the company’s chairman, Qiu Zhonghui, announcing that the business published its 100 millionth Bible in July."  (I think these Bibles are almost all for export, to bring cash to China, not to convert Chinese...  But God does His work regardless of the resistance.  E. Fox)
