What if you had a very dear friend

whom you loved, and whom you spent much time with. This friend then died. You were heartbroken, but discovered that he had left you a series of letters.

Would you read them?

If you are a Christian, you believe that you have such a friend. Have you read the letters He left you? My version of the New American Bible has 1500 pages, and many of those are commentary that you are better off not reading. So maybe it is a total of 1400 pages. How many novels have you read in your life? Newspapers? Magazines? I bet that it is more than 1400 pages.

So why haven't you read the whole bible?
