Hillary Clinton Lauds Bible As Most Influential Book In Her Life

The former secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton very recently in an interview with the New York Times, named the Bible as the most influential book in her life.

She was asked ‘If you had to name one book that made you who you are today, what would it be?’

Her response, “At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking. I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it. I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement.”

Are you surprised or should I say skeptical about this? I’m not.

I have never met her in person, and chances are I probably won’t either, but Mrs. Clinton continue to be among the many women who by their political and public lives, have empowered, inspired and motivated me to pursue my dream/s and my passion in life, even in the midst of fire storms and having to deal with those who for whatever reason have been very critical.

I have no doubt in my mind that it is her faith that kept her grounded, tenacious and strong willed all these years and that led her to start initiatives while in public office where she fought against human trafficking, promoted maternal health care in developing countries and inspired her to fight for women’s rights.

Her new book, Hard Choices, which as one source said, has already sold over 100,000 copies in the first week it went on sale earlier this month and debuted at no. 1 on the Indie Bestseller List and the no. 1 spot on the New York Times combined print and e-book nonfiction best-sellers list.

EMB wish her every success in her life.

  1. Hello; I think part of the problem is that so many people are searching for answers and not finding them that when a high profile powerful person especially a woman points to god and the bible they just don’t want to believe her. I know that her life is an example of strength and it has to come from somewhere. a solid post. thank you, Max


    • Hi Max, first a warm welcome to my blog! Your point is well taken, it’s a good observation you’ve made and sincerely, I do agree. I also believe that whatever persons choose to believe must be out of a heart of love and respect for the other person even if it’s a high profile individual, a female especially.

      Have a great weekend! God bless you for inspiring us with your wisdom and knowledge. 🙂
