The Bible is the final authority on truth. It's an account of God's sacred romance with humanity!
The bible contains good guidance for living a life worth living. Pitfalls are identified and warning is given.
It's a good book with some interesting historical significance. The New Testament is a hodgepodge of works written in Greek that were placed in order by subject, not by the order in which they were written. It serves as a partial basis for doctrines in Christianity, so I find it interesting. Other than that, it's just another book to me.
I believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God as given to His appointed and anointed prophets and messengers to give to the world to teach it His precepts and laws. I believe it is God's urgent call to His people to love and obey Him for His best in their lives. I believe it is God's love story to all of us, telling us the length, breadth, and depth of His love and calling us to a personal relationship with Him. It shows how much He was willing to sacrifice to get His people to return to Him and save them from the eternal damnation due to their sinful nature. And it also shows that He is above ALL, controls all, and above all, cares for all. I believe it is one of the greatest gifts ever given to man, other than salvation by grace by the death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Christ to pay the cost for our lives, so precious to God!
I grew up on the bible and even as a child I had questions about the authentic authority of the bible and was scolded and brain washed since then to accept everything as 'Gospel Truth'. Well it is not. The bible is full of contradictions and interpolations. IT has been re-written and white-washed. It has been used to promote slavery and is use today to condemn Gay people or anything that is not 'Christian'. I care not for the bible anymore except for a few positive verses written by man, not God.
The Good Book has become 'The Good For Nothing Book' to me.
The Holy Bible is God's truth. It is the words of Almighty God spoken by God to the writers He himself chose and written by man.
I was taught it was God's Word. Most of my life it seemed like a book full of interesting stories and lots of details I didn't understand. As I learned to have relationship with God instead of just having knowledge about Him, this book--the Bible--became a totally different kind of experience for me. The Holy Spirit began to illuminate the text and it literally felt like it just came alive. I read something now and think, "Wow! I read this a hundred times and never saw this before!" God knows what is going on in my life and what I need to hear. But there are some that can search the Scriptures and never encounter God (this is what Jesus accused the Pharisees of). Thanks for asking!

If you want to see some truly faulty logic, torturous reasoning and mental gymnastics at work, confront a believer with a blatant Biblical contradiction, then sit back and watch them attempt to jump through the hoops of explaining how a contradiction isn't REALLY a contradiction. Accepting these...
