Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

The Nature of the Bible

The nature of the Bible speaks of its inspired, inerrant, infallible character. The Bible is a compilation of 66 books written over a span of time that covered dates in three millennia. Forty authors of various time periods, backgrounds, education levels, and experiences penned those canonical Books that fit together perfectly to tell one story, with one theme, with no contradictions (if interpreted properly). As an example, Moses and Paul had the best education their ages could provide, while there are indications Peter and some of the Minor Prophets were largely uneducated men.

Despite all the variations in the human authors, the theme of each Book of the Bible and the Canon as a whole is that God is righteous and man has rebelled against Him. God loved man so much He provided a Way that man can be reconciled to Him. The theme of the Bible is Jesus Christ. The only way that could happen is with God as the author of each canonical Book.
