The greatest event in our nation's history

Life magazine published a book listing the most important events of the last 1,000 years. Some of the events you might expect to be there, like #2, Columbus's voyage to the New World in 1492. Some events you're glad are there, like #93, the invention of painless surgery. Some events you might be surprised to find, like #82, the invention of Coke in 1886.

But the #1 most important event of the last millennium, according to Life? The printing of the Bible on Gutenberg's printing press in 1455! This led to the Bible (and other books) being distributed to the public at large for the first time, which helped bring about the Renaissance—and the United States of America.

Life got it right.
The Bible has been the key to the advance of civilization. It is also the key to our personal spiritual advancement.
