The Highest and Best of Books

No one says like Luther:

[I]n a word, the Holy Scripture is the highest and best of books, abounding in comfort under all afflictions and trials. It teaches us to see, to feel, to grasp, and to comprehend faith, hope, and charity, far otherwise than mere human reason can; and when evil oppresses us, it teaches how these virtues throw light upon the darkness, and how after this poor, miserable existence of ours on earth, there is another and an eternal life (TableTalk, 94).
