Arthur Tappan (A. T.) Pierson
The Bible is the greatest traveller in the world. It penetrates to every country, civilized and uncivilized. It is seen in the royal palace and the humble cottage. It is the friend of Emperors and beggars. It is read by the light of the dim candle amid Artic snows. It is read under the glare of the equatorial sun. It is read in city and country, amid the crowds and solitude. Wherever its’ message is received, it frees the mind from bondage and fills the heart with gladness.
