And another strange thing about Bible is among all religious/spiritual writings, which I know, the Bible is most effective in transforming hearts of people. This despite the fact that it is difficult to get any text accurately after 2000 years and  occultists' statements that Bible text is not historically accurate.
Third interesting thing is such old and according to some people historically inaccurate book is most influential in the world.
Irrespective of historical accuracy, contents of Bible are of extremely high quality. Much of the bible consists of abstract thoughts, requiring the use of what Theosophists call the causal body or higher mental body. I think study of Bible, especially New Testament should help development of higher mental body.
