“They Are of Great Worth Unto the Gentiles”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

Specifically, the covenants the Lord made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; with Moses; with David and others-as given in the Hebrew scriptures-are of infinite worth to the gentile world. In general, who can measure the worth of the Bible to the world, to those of nations other than the nation of Judah? Who can assess the impact of this book of books with its timely and timeless truths?

“It has done more, with greater numbers of people, to preserve Christian culture, uphold gospel ethics, and teach true doctrine than any other book ever written, many times over. Nations have been born and have died, continents have been conquered, and hemispheres settled because of biblical influence. There is no way to overstate the worth and blessing of the Bible for mankind.”
