The Bible is a Unique Book
Question: Does it say anywhere in the Bible that the Bible is the only book that is important?
Answer: There are other important and helpful books beside the Bible. Yet the Bible is a book in a category of its own. The Bible is inspired by God - that means that the human authors of the Bible (like Moses and Matthew) were led by the Holy Spirit to write down His Word accurately and without mistake. The Bible is God-breathed: it is the very Word of God. Other books are written by fallible men and women; but the Bible alone is the infallible, written Word of God. Can you see the crucial difference?
If you are seeking to know the way of salvation and how to please God, then there is no better place to go other than the Bible. Please read this passage carefully (2 Timothy 3:15-17):
Please note the twofold use of the Scriptures:
The Bible is a unique book; it contains the mind of God, reveals our sinful condition, the way of salvation, the doom of the unrepentant and the happiness of believers. Its precepts and promises are true, guiding and comforting the faithful. Read it slowly, daily, prayerfully. Listen attentively to the preaching of the Word. Read good books that explain its meaning. Know, believe and obey the Bible because it is the voice of the Lord to you.
