HILLARY CLINTON: THE BIBLE IS MY ‘BIGGEST INFLUENCE’
by CHARLIE SPIERING
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced during a New York Times interview that the Holy Bible is the book that made her who she is today.
“If you had to name one book that made you who you are today, what would it be?” asked The New York Times, in a book review questionnaire.
“I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement,” she added.
Clinton explained that she was a voracious book reader, naming off multiple writers who made an impact on her.
Of the Russian novel The Brothers Karamazov, Clinton explained, “[It] made a lasting impression on me when I read it as a young woman,” and she stated that she would try to reread it this summer.
