A Lovely Description of the Bible

I'm reading Adam Nicolson, God's Secretaries: the making of the King James Bible. I love this sentence on the Bible:
It was the word of God, an enormous, direct, vastly complicated, infinitely interpretable account of what God meant by and for his creation. 122
Sums it up pretty well.

And to think those secretaries were essentially Anglican. Hadn't thought of that before.
