Illus.: “In Prison With Three Books”

The editor of a well-known London newspaper sent a letter of inquiry to 100 professors, authors, merchants, and other professional people. The inquiry was, “Suppose you were sent to prison for 3 years and you could only take 3 books with you. Which 3 would you choose? Please state them in order of their importance.” Out of the replies, 98 put one book first on their list–the Bible.

Few of these men were religious. In fact, several were atheists and agnostics. Yet they knew that no other book could give them the comfort and hope to help in dark days.
