How a Writer of Words Recognized the Author of the Word

Novelist Larry Woiwode writes in Words for Readers and Writers:

The pages I’ve composed as a writer, millions of finished sentences, attempt to embody through words aspects of the Word in people and their actions, or to amplify its traditions to include human beings attempting to live out lives of belief or unbelief in the world we all experience daily.

In Acts you will find,

For me, a writer aware of how much more complex each book becomes with each sentence added, it was the clarity of the patterns and structure in Scripture and their ability to intermesh with one another through as many levels as I could imagine that convinced me that the Bible couldn’t be the creation of a man or any number of men, and was certainly not the product of separate men divided by centuries, but was of another world: supernatural.

I was forced to admit under no pressure but the pressure of the text itself that it could be only what it claimed it was, the Word of God.
