Maybe this is one of the best definitions, i have heard, of what the Bible is...
Taken from an email i received, which was taken from the foreward of the sender's Bible...

"The Bible contains:
The mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrine is holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.
Read it to be wise, believe it to be saved, and practice it tobe holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christian's character.
Here heaven is open and the gates of hell are disclosed.
It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, health to the soul, and a river of pleasure.
It is given to you here in this life, will be opened at judgement, and is established forever.
It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and condemn all who trifle with its contents."

"For this reason, we also thank God without ceasing, because when you recieved the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of man, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe." 1 Thess. 2:13
