Brevard Child's theology of the Bible

Just came across this excellent and concise theology of scripture from an interview with the late Brevard Childs:

"The divine and human dimensions of Scripture can never be separated as if there were a kernel and a husk, but the heart of the Bible lies in the mystery of how a fully time-conditioned writing, written by fragile human authors, can continually become the means of hearing the very Word of God, fresh and powerful, to recipients open to faithful response."

I think I might have to put that up on my study wall...
