Note 1. - "The Bible is characterised by the unity of its theme. It unfolds a series of acts, all contributing to one design or end. This is the more remarkable on account of the variety in its authorship. Had the Bible been written in one age, or by one person, its unity might not so much surprise us. But the Bible is a collection of books which were written by different persons, in different languages, in different lands, and at different times. Seventeen centuries were employed in its completion. The subjects it embraces are so numerous as to give it a cyclopaedic character. Yet from first to last that marvellous collection of books is occupied with one subject, animated by one Spirit, directed to one object or end." - H. Grattan Guiness, D.D. in "Creation Centred in Christ."

Note 2. - "There is no sure doctrine but such as is conformable to the Word of God: that the Lord forbids the teaching of any other doctrine; that each text of the Holy Scriptures ought to be explained by other clearer texts. . . . This Word is the only truth; it is the sure rule of all doctrine and of all life, and can never fail or deceive us." - From the Protest of the Princes at Spires, quoted in "History of Protestantism."

Note 3. - "The best commentary on Scripture is Scripture itself, 'comparing spiritual things with spiritual' - which yields a threefold result, interpretation, illustration, illumination. The Bible is its own lexicon, defining its terms; its own expositor, explaining its meaning; its own interpreter, unlocking its mysteries." - Arthur T. Pierson in "Knowing the Scriptures."

Note 4. - "This Bible, or the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only complete guide to everlasting blessedness: men may err, but the Scripture cannot; for it is the Word of God Himself, who can neither mistake, deceive, nor be deceived. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17.) From this Word all doctrines must be derived and proved; and from it every man must learn his duty to God, to his neighbour, and to himself." - Dr. Adam Clarke in "The Preachers' Manual."
