The Grace of non-Inspiration

These two sentences from Jacques Berlinerblau made me chuckle a little:

As for divine origins, well let’s just say that it might be an act of grace to not ascribe various books of the Hebrew Bible to God or the Holy Spirit. For if those texts were indeed written, dictated, or inspired by a heavenly author, then His literary competence, not to mention His sanity, would frequently be question.

I've often thought this of the Book of Joshua! 

Also, somewhat related is this gem from p. 22, "A biblical scholar is a person who has devoted his or her life to reasoning with a madman."
