Has any piece of literature affected me in a major way?
The answer is yes. The Bible has had a major effect in my life, not because of what is written, but because of the author. I believe that it is the author that gives you the revelation needed in order to understand what is written in the Bible. The author more than anything is more important than the Bible, for without Him you wouldn’t be able to understand what is written in it. In conclusion it is not the Bible, but the word of the author.
