The Bible as "How to Manual" or "Character Sketch"
Last night I was in seminary class. Someone was giving an informal testimony and said something to the effect, "We need to look in the Bible to find solutions because it is an answer book." Looking at the Bible through the eyes of what I call suffering I find the Bible is not so much an answer book but a book to tell me who God is. He is my answer. That may sound a bit trite but I think it makes a lot of difference.
