1.10 Why is the Bible so important?
The Bible is not just some musty old book that you can just ignore because it was written ages ago. It is the Word of God, written down by people who were inspired by him.
The texts are about you and your life, even though they are thousands of years old. Every time that you read the Bible, God can speak to you and touch you in a new way. The Bible’s most important message is God’s love for every person, including you.

The Wisdom of the Church
This is what the Church Fathers say
We have heard from none others the plan of our salvation, than from those through whom the Gospel has come down to us, which they did at one time proclaim in public, and at a later period, by the Will of God, handed down to us in the Scriptures, to be the ground and pillar of our faith. [St. Irenaeus, Against heresies, Bk. 3, Chap. 1 (MG 7, 844)]
