What’s so great about the bible?

The bible claims for itself that it is God breathed, that it is written by the Holy Spirit of God Himself through human instruments. The bible is written over thousands of years, in a number of different cultures in three different major languages, yet the entire thing all points in the same direction. There is a theme that goes all the way through the whole thing, it's absolutely remarkable. I thoroughly believe that the bible is breathed of God, that God wrote it.
