THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PRINTED WORD
Below are some important quotes by well known men of God stressing the importance of the distribution of sound Gospel literature to use to reach a lost and dying world:
"For more than fifty years I have prayerfully considered the problem: How can we evangelize the world in the space of one generation? Long ago I was convinced that we could never send out enough missionaries. But there must be a way. After travel and study in 53 countries, I have come to the conclusion: the only way we are going to be able to carry out the Great Commission...will be by means of the printed page. By the systematic use of the printed page we shall be able to enter every home and thus reach every individual with the Gospel message."
- Dr. J. Oswald Smith
"If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country I do not know what is to become of us as a nation. And the thought is one to cause solemn reflection on the part of every Christian and patriot. If truth is not diffused, error will be. If God and His word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy. If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will. If the power of the Gospel is not felt through the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end." - Daniel Webster
