Paul Warner commented on a post on Blogger.
Our epistemological grid, how we know, as people and as Christ followers includes revelation, reason, tradition (community), experience and emotion, and probably prioritized in that order, with revelation taking the front stage and used to test all things and sources of knowing truth. 
And when it comes to God it must be intimately personal and by the very nature of God, as the Holy Other, it must include wonder, mystery, awe, and worship.
The Bible is God’s Word and we can learn a lot from it 'about' God and His Sovereignty and human history. However, if we do not meet God in the text and as a result experience transformation in our lives and in our communities through the encounter we are using the Bible as an end in itself not the means to its intended end, knowing and enjoying God and participating in His plan.
Thanks for stimulating our thoughts Matt and stirring our thirst for the Author and Finisher of our faith.
