I didn't know the Bible was dead

This guy (RC Sproul) gets the Bible,

“When I was hired to teach the Scriptures in required Bible courses at a Christian college. The president of the institution phoned me and said, “We need someone young and exciting, someone with a dynamic method who will be able to, ‘make the Bible come alive.’” “I had to force myself to swallow my words. I wanted to say, ‘You want me to make the Bible come alive? I didn’t know that it had died. In fact, I never even heard that it was ill. Who was the attending physician at the Bible’s demise?’ No, I can’t make the Bible come alive for anyone. The Bible is already alive. It makes me come alive
