Of Another World

Novelist Larry Woiwode, in his Words for Readers and Writersadmires Scripture for its literary genius:

For me, a writer aware of how much more complex each book becomes with each sentence added, it was the clarity of the patterns and structure in Scripture and their ability to intermesh with one another through as many levels as I could imagine that convinced me that the Bible couldn’t be the creation of a man or any number of men, and was certainly not the product of separate men divided by centuries, but was of another world: supernatural.

I was forced to admit under no pressure but the pressure of the text itself that it could be only what it claimed it was, the Word of God.

Amen and amen.
