    The Greatest Book Ever Written; The Greatest Story Ever Told by Angie B. Williams (March 23, 2024)
    https://discover.hubpages.com/religion- … er-written

    This compilation published at HubPages.com is inspired by a word prompt offered by Brenda Alrledge with her series for week 67. That word prompt is 'Book'.
    https://discover.hubpages.com/literatur … ty-week-67

    A personal perspective after reading it is that it removes the mystical, magical, and cosmic by revealing the divine. Divine as an adjective describing her work has two common definitions and Angie's work fulfills them both. Those definitions are:

    1. of, from, or like God or a god.
    2. excellent; delightful as in "he had the most divine smile"

    Her title is spot on offering a delightful read about the Bible and the life of Jesus, the Christ. Whether a Christian or not opportunity for perspective through both the learning experience and pleasure reading offers a message for the reader to ponder, heed, or criticize. Enjoy!

    All comments are welcomed!

    Thanks so much Tim. If I ever get around to writing my book, I will call on you to write the Foreword.

    This is the perfect post in response to Brenda's word prompt "book." What better than the "Bible" to illustrate that. Well done A.B. thanks for sharing this, Tim.

        All is well A.B. Thanks. I am just very low key lately.

    Not being a religious person, I DO RESPECT everyone's beliefs. I believe in  universal consciousness, but not the way that organized religions are interpreting it. The very fact that there are more than one religion (actually over 4000) points at the fact that there is nothing there to "know", but only to deliberately believe.
    And again, I don't see anything wrong in people's devoted belief and their reading holy books, but they don't satisfy my particular intellectual appetite for factual reality.
    I hope no one minds this expression of freedom to share my own opinion -- moreover so because I am not really "opposing" anybody else's.

    Many religions, but one God.
    Time is measured by God's time, in the flesh.
    Light separates us from the darkness, Jesus Christ is the light.
    Not religion(s), Faith.
    Not going to preach, I promise. Lol
    I respect your right to believe as you believe, Val.

    Hey A.B.....
    It's nice to see you.

    I can't wait to read this response you've written for the word prompt.

    It sounds quite interesting....
    The Greatest Book Ever Written.

    I'll get back with you after I've had time to read it.

    Happy Sunday.

    Angie,
    You've definitely peaked my interest with the title, "The Greatest Book Ever Written; The Greatest Story Ever Told."

    It sounds like this book is quite an accomplishment.  It took over 1500 years to complete, was written in three different languages on three continents by 40 men.

    You cross reference the birth, death, burial an resurrection of Jesus from the first sign given in the old testament of the Bible to the last moment when he is resurrected from the tomb.

    It's truly amazing that these predictions were made in the Bible years ahead & King Herod knew where to look for the messiah.

    Then you tell us how on the 3rd day after his crucifixion, he sees the light and comes back to life, which is also prophesied in the Old Testament.

    He died for our sins so that we may be healed.

    You've definitely written a wonderful piece for this coming
    Easter Sunday.

    I didn't realize it was so soon...but my Easter lillies & daffodils have bloomed, so I guess the flowers know.

    Great video by Casting Cowns...I really like them.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

      Thanks Brenda, you chose an inspiring word, per usual!
      I'll bet your flowers are beautiful and, yes, they do seem to know! smile

    Hello AB, Don’t mind saying I am particularly fond of the canonical gospels, and Psalms. Thank you for reminding us of the Bible, and the glory of our Lord, Jesus Christ, during this 2024 Easter season.
