Page 263 - My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Page 246 - He that is unjust, let him be unjust still : and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still : and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still : and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Page 263 - If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, That giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering ; for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind, and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.

Page 262 - Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

About the author (1847)

George Herbert Walker Bush was born on June 12, 1924 in Milton, Massachusetts. He attended Phillips Academy in Andover. At the age of 18, Bush enlisted in the Navy and became the youngest pilot in the Navy when he got his wings. He flew 58 combat missions during World War II and received the Distinguished Flying Cross for bravery in action when he was shot down during a mission. After the war, Bush attended Yale, and after graduating, began a career in the oil industry. Much like his father before him, Bush became interested in public service and served two terms as the Texas Representative to Congress. He had two unsuccessful runs for a Senate seat before receiving some high profile assignments. He was appointed as an Ambassador to the United Nations, followed by an appointment as Chairman of the Republican National Convention, the Chief of the United States Liaison Office in the People's Republic of China and finally, Bush became the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In 1980, Bush tried for the Republican bid for President, but was chosen instead as Reagan's running mate. After serving as Vice President of the United States, Bush won the Republican vote in 1988 for President, running with Dan Quayle and defeating Dukakis for the position of President. During Bush's presidency, he was well favored for his role abroad in Dessert Storm, but Americans were disillusioned with the way things were run domestically. In 1992, Bush lost the reelection to William Jefferson Clinton, a democrat.
