The Scripture Testimony Index seeks to answer the question:

Who has ever trusted God like that?

Starting with the New Testament as the source for a subject index, we have used data science with a large body of missionary biographies and personal narratives to discover amazing stories of God’s reality in our lives. Then, one by one, we selected the best to create this curated collection.

Explore the index below to find story excerpts, along with information about the source books and where you can find more.

This is an ongoing process. The counters above reflect our progress as we continue the story research.

How we put this together

First, we scanned and processed more than 1,000 books, then added the raw text to a database. More books are being added all the time. Explore the library.

Next we combed through the New Testament to identify topic sentences. Our reasoning is that if a person is writing about a spiritual experience, he/she will either quote the Scriptures, or explain it in a way that correlates to the Scriptures. This hypothesis has proven true, and as a result the Scriptures come alive through these myriad stories.

Using the topic sentences, we next used a Sentence Similarity algorithm to find potential matches for each sentence in all 1,000 books. For example, by using the source phrase, “First be reconciled to your brother,” from Matthew 23-24, we found “two brothers who had not spoken civilly to one another for years were among those reconciled,” from Isobel Kuhn’s book Nests Above the Abyss.

Next we did a full text search for the source phrase using the Apache Lucene search engine. The engine returns both exact matches and “fuzzy” matches containing the key words from the phrase, which combine to provide the “fine-toothed comb” for finding stories.

Then we looked at the book database from the other direction. Instead of starting with our topic sentences and searching the texts, we used Topic Clustering algorithms to identify topics and themes we didn’t realize were there. This requires almost two weeks of CPU time!

Finally, we read every matching story for relevance and impact, adding the best to the Scripture Testimony Index.

Each of these steps is described in greater detail in our Data Science section.

Punja Bhagat was a popular and well reputed fetish priest who plied his trade in Gujarat. When Punja came across The Salvation Army, he was led to Christ and on returning to his new people with this new message, he was rejected and cast away. But this did not deter Punja who continued to pray for his people until he prevailed and was used by God to lead them to this Christ he had found.

When Rakmi suddenly went dumb, every sacrifice to various idols and gods; done to make her regain her ability to speak proved futile. But thinking to herself that there surely should be a God able to help her, she cried to the One True God, vowing to fast once a week for the rest of her days if He healed her. Rakmi's bold prayer was answered and she too honoured her vow.
