The School of All Wisdom

From the preface to the Geneva Bible, 1560, describing Scripture:
. . . the light to our paths, the key of the kingdom of heaven, our comfort in affliction, our shield and sword against Satan, the school of all wisdom, the glass wherein we behold God’s face, the testimony of his favor, and the only food and nourishment of our souls.
--quoted in Gerald Bray, ed., Documents of the English Reformation (James Clarke 2004), 361
