The Bible we've got

Eddie Arthur hit it out of the park with this obeservation:
Have you ever wondered why the Bible is the way it is? Why did God inspire a long narrative with lots of wandering and digression, rather than give us a easy-to-digest book of wise theological insights? The answer is that God does not want us only to know about Him. If He did, He would have given us a systematic theology. He wants us to know Him, and so He tells us His story.
