A Very Singular Providence

“Cities fall, kingdoms come to nothing, empires fade away as the smoke. Where are the Numa, Minos, Lycurgus? Where are their books? and what is become of their laws? But that this book [The Holy Bible] no tyrant should have been able to consume, no tradition to choke, no heretic maliciously to corrupt; that it should stand unto this day, amid the wreck of all that is human, without the alteration of one sentence so as to change the doctrine taught therein,—surely there is a very singular providence claiming our attention in a most remarkable manner.”
John Jewel, as quoted in Homage to the Book, pp. 94-95
