The 401 Book charts the path of a 42-year old agnostic businessman's discovery of Biblical Truth via 2,000 historically accurate quotes, all leading to the startling conclusion that the Bible contains the authentic words of God.
"Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge."
- Kahlil Gibran, Author & Philosopher (1912). 401 Quote No. 78.
In author, David Hooper's own words, "I was sitting on 10 years of research that led me to the God of the Bible. If it happened for me like that, I figured it would hit home with others who, like me, need incredible evidence to believe incredible conclusions. Frankly, we didn't even want to wait to publish the book, so we began releasing quotes individually, with citations and backstories, in the form of The 401 Quote Card Series, which are free to the world. Approximately 700 Quote Cards are in circulation as of this summer [August 2020]."
"The Devil is in the details, but so is salvation."
- Admiral Hyman Rickover, U.S. Navy (1960). 401 Quote No. 240.
Businessman & Filmmaker, David Hooper, began keeping a database of quotes in 2011, when he began his research for the hit film, The Anatomy of a Great Deception (2015). By 2019, the database of quotes, along with Hooper's thoughts and/or contextual backstory, often recorded at the time of discovery, describe a fascinating and logical path to the life-altering, and inescapable conclusion that the Bible truly contains the authentic and accurate words of God.
"From the top of a mountain nearly 2,000 years ago, Christ warned mankind against being duped by the very menace we face today."
- J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI (1957). 401 Quote No. 329.
Close to 2,000 quotes have been meticulously researched with detailed original citations for each, except in a few rare cases, in which second-hand quotes, like deathbed confessions are included. David Hooper individually researched and studied each quote in it's original context. Each quote has, at least, one source citation, to an original (or credible) source. Some popular Internet quotes aren't included as the author was unable to find a credible source.
