Excerpt from Man and the Bible: A Review of the Place of the Bible in Human History

Probably no lines in The Cottars Saturday Night so much endeared Scotland's national poet to his countrymen as the picture of the family gathering around the father-priest of the household, while, with bonnet reverently doffed, he opens the "big ha'-Bible" before him and searches the sacred pages for some word in season. Nor was it Scotland only that vibrated to the touch of that gifted player on the human heart. But throughout the western world, to which one great gift of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries had been an open Bible, Burns' description of family worship in a cottage-temple kindled emotions of remembrance and repentance in the hearts of all who read.
