How the Bible is Like & Unlike Every Other Book

Kevin Vanhoozer:

(The Bible) is like every other book because it has human authors.

It is unlike every other book because (1) it has God for its ultimate author; (2) it has God (Jesus Christ) as its ultimate content; (3) it has God (the Holy Spirit) for its ultimate interpreter; and (4) it has the church for its ultimate interpretive community.
