Do we need a new Bible to help spread the gospel to all the world? Well, how about a humanist Bible?
That’s right. A bible has been written by an atheist for secularists. British philosopher A. C. Grayling has compiled quotes over much of his lifetime and published them in the March 2011 The Good Book: A Humanist Bible. “The book was designed as a secular alternative to religious text, and to be read as a narrative drawing on non-religious philosophy, including that from Ancient Greek, Chinese, Roman, Indian and Arab civilizations, as well as the European Renaissance and the Enlightenment. The book also contains a summary of scientific discoveries from the 19th century to the present day.” The subtitle for the US imprint is A Secular Bible. 
Grayling believes we have outgrown our need for God. It is interesting that he should use religious language for his book when he believes religion was invented as a social structure. Some bloggers have asked, “Where do people go to worship who believe in Grayling's bible? How do they gather together for services? Who will they worship? Grayling?”
Do we need a new Bible? Has the message of the old one become archaic and outdated? Do the Ten Commandments need a fresh updating (Grayling has created his own list of ten commandments)? Doesn’t this create a new or different gospel?
The Bible says, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14). Will Graylings bible help spread the gospel? Not if it has taken the gospel out of the Scriptures. How can you share the good news of a soon coming Savior if you do not believe you need a savior or, for that matter, do not even believe in God?
The Bible, the book that contains the Old and New Testaments, is spreading to the all the world. Statistics on Bible translation and distribution show the rapid movement of the good news. In 1900 the Bible was available in 537 different languages. By 1980 it had been translated (in full or partly) into 1,811 languages. That covers about 96 percent of the world population. In 1900 the annual distribution of the Scriptures was about 5.4 million. In 2009 that statistic rose to about 83 million Bibles. 
Proclaiming the gospel message as contained in the Scriptures is a clear sign that Jesus’ coming is about to happen. Every person on our planet will be given a chance to respond to the Lord. Then the final conflict between good and evil will forever end. If you would like to learn more about the gospel and Jesus’ soon return, please visit one of our upcoming Prophecy Seminars.
Daniel was once told, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase” (Daniel 12:4). The aged apostle John was later told, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand” (Revelation 22:10). We are seeing an increase in people searching the Scriptures. Knowledge about the Bible is increasing. People are thirsty for the true word of God. We do not need an alternative Bible.
