What If the Bible Were Boring?


R.C. Sproul

Thankfully the Bible isn’t a boring book if you are actually paying attention, but what if it were? What if the Bible was the most boring book in the world? How would that change how Christians relate to it?

R.C. Sproul:

“If the Bible were the most boring book in the world, dull, uninteresting and seemingly irrelevant, it would still be our duty to study it. If its literary style were awkward and confusing, the duty would remain. We live as human beings under an obligation by divine mandate to study diligently God’s Word. He is our Sovereign, it is His Word and He commands that we study it. A duty is not an option. If you have not yet begun to respond to that duty, then you need to ask God to forgive you and to resolve to do your duty from this day forth.” (Taken from Knowing Scripture).

I highly recommend Sproul’s short book on Scripture. Clear, concise, and very readable. Actually, anything you pick up from Sproul can be characterized by those adjectives too.
