The Bible was written by 40+ authors over a span of more than 1500 years. The authors were from various walks of life:
Moses was a leader trained in the universities of Egypt
Solomon was a king
Joshua was a military general
Peter was a fisherman
Luke was a doctor
Matthew was a tax collector
Paul was a Jewish leader
Daniel was a politician
Amos was a herdsman
It was written in prison (Paul), the wilderness (Moses), in a palace (Daniel), while on travel (Luke) and on a island (John). The writers wrote in different languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek) and lived in different countries (from Egypt to Rome and probably on out to Persia).
In spite of being written by so many different authors from so many walks of life, who lived in different lands in different times, and addressing so many controversial subjects, the Bible speaks in complete harmony. It has one overiding theme:
