What might be the greatest cultural treasure of our civilization?
It should only take about a nano second to arrive at an answer.
Is there anybody prepared to argue that it isn't the Holy Bible?
Can anybody name any work of literature, art or architecture that has inspired so many people for so long?
Or given rise to so many other great works. Many of the masterpieces that hang in galleries around the world, the great churches of Europe and Asia minor, poetry and literature have all drawn inspiration this book.
But of course all of that is trivial compared to the real treasure contained within its pages or the influence it has had in making us who we are today.
But some people are far too clever to realize that.
