Denzel Washington: "I Read the Bible Every Day"

HOLLYWOOD, December 18, 2007 ( - Hollywood super star Denzel Washington revealed what he indicates is a strong spiritual life and devotion to his family in a December 2007 interview with Reader’s Digest. In a candid interview, the academy award winner emphasized the importance of his family and the Bible in his life.

“I read the Bible every day,” Washington said. “I’m in my second pass-through now, in the Book of John. My pastor told me to start with the New Testament, so I did, maybe two years ago. Worked my way through it, then through the Old Testament. Now I’m back in the New Testament. It’s better the second time around.”

It is always nice to hear something positive about influential people in the public eye. Thank you for posting this.
