October President’s Birthdays

Did you know? There were more U.S. Presidents born in October than any other month?

Presidents John Adams, Hays, Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, Eisenhower and Carter! And each—influenced by the Bible!

Among whom are:

America’s second president John Adams, who said, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson that “the Bible is the best book in the world. it contains more of my little Phylosophy than all the Libraries I have seen. . .”

Twenty-sixth President, Teddy Roosevelt, often quoted the Bible in his letters and speeches.

In July, Time Magazine listed over 200 reasons to celebrate America. A list that included 39th President--Jimmy Carter, who has taught Sunday School for the past 35 years and whose book, “NIV Lessons from Life Bible” was released by Zondervan in 2012.

Engage with the Bible—a Book for all times!
