The Bible invites us to accept the mystery of God, that God cannot be contained in a book, (maybe 'and') appropriate that story for ourselves in our contexts.  The Bible is, in that sense, a vehicle for communing with God, rather than a binding answer book or set of instructions.  Thoughts from Peter Enns from his book, The Bible Tells Me So, from chapter seven, "The Bible, Just As It Is."
