“The science of Jesus Christ is the most excellent of sciences. Let no one turn away from the Bible because it is not a book of learning and wisdom. It is. Would you know astronomy? It is here— it tells you of the Son of Righteousness and the Star of Bethlehem.
“Would you know botany? It is here— it tells you of the plant of renown— the Lily of the Valley, and the Rose of Sharon. Would you know geology and mineralogy? You shall learn it here— for you may read of the Rock of Ages, and the White Stone with the name engraved thereon, which no man knows except he who receives it.
“Would you study history? Here is the most ancient of all the records of the history of the human race. Whatever your science is, come and bend over this book; your science is here. Come and drink out of this pure fountain of knowledge and wisdom, and you will find yourself made wise unto salvation.”
—Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
