The Irony of Voltaire

In the eighteenth century, Voltaire, the French atheistic philosopher boldly predicted:

‘Another century and there will not be a Bible on earth!’

Voltaire’s house later became the headquarters of the Bible Society, printing and distributing of thousands of Bibles.

This quote has now been forgotten, but the bible will never be.
