I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible

“As Commander-in-Chief, I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States. Throughout the centuries men of many faiths and diverse origins have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel, and inspiration. It is a fountain of strength and now, as always, an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul.” [As written by President Roosevelt; Prologue to Gideon New testaments given to soldiers in WWII]
