“Every fair-minded, unbiased person, who will carefully read the Bible with a desire to master its contents, will find abundant evidence that it is of divine origin, and was designed to teach us our duty toward God and our fellowmen.” – The Honorable Samuel Maxwell, former Chief Justice of Nebraska
