U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt felt that: "A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education."
U.S. President Herbert Hoover stated: "The study of the Bible is a post-graduate course in the richest library of human experience."
And the American educator William Lyon Phelps once said: "I thoroughly believe in a university education for men and women, but I believe a knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without the Bible."
"It is impossible to mentally or socially enslave a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom." -Horace Greeley
