Why Is the Bible Important?

19 Nov

This blogpost by Desiring God was originally intended to introduce another subject, but the quote by John Piper is important in answering the question, “Why is the Bible Important?” He writes:

From history and from my own experience, I can say that it is almost impossible to exaggerate the importance of the Bible. We humans are incapable of finding out what we need so much to know: how to overcome sin, to escape the wrath of God, to become new creatures, to walk pleasing to the Lord. God must reveal this to us or we perish. This he has done and continues to do by means of a written Word, the Bible. When a man has understood the Bible he has understood the revelation of God infallibly, inerrantly and verbally.
