“God’s word out of the Holy Bible is very relevant to each one of us.” —Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve

The International Day of the Bible is Monday, November 24. This multifaith celebration of the Holy Bible is an opportunity for Latter-day Saints to share their belief in and love for the Bible and the Savior.

At noon on Monday, members are encouraged to share their belief in the Bible on social media. This could be a favorite verse, a video, or some other creative way of sharing while using the hashtag #BibleCelebration

The Bible and its teachings are “too often ignored and judged to be impractical,” Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve said during a Concert of Praise for God’s Word held at the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City November 23, 2013.

“But God’s word out of the Holy Bible is very relevant to each one of us,” Elder Christofferson continued. “The teaching of this divinely inspired book will ultimately lead us to Christ and salvation. I believe that people of faith who read and ponder biblical teachings in their lives form the moral underpinning of society.”

The International Day of the Bible is sponsored by the National Bible Association and supported by many organizations, including the American Bible Society. Learn more on the website, Facebook page, and on Twitter.
