God’s work of inspiration…

God’s work of inspiration meant using the human authors “in research (Luke 1:1-4), permitting them to express intense feeling (Romans 9:1-3), transmitting direct revelation (Deuteronomy 9:10), giving authoritative commands (1 Corinthians 7:10), expressing opinions (1 Corinthians 7:40), but always guided and guarded by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21) so that the product can be said to have been breathed out by God (2 Timothy 3:16).”

Charles Ryrie, quoted in Reasoning from the Scriptures with Catholics by Ron Rhodes, p. 54
