Here's the quote, taken from Frank Schaeffer's (yes, son of Francis Schaeffer) book Sham Pearls for Real Swine:
“The Bible is a dangerous, uncivilized, abrasive, raw, complicated, aggressive, scandalous, and offensive book. The Bible is the literature of God, and literature, as every book burner knows, is dangerous. The Bible is the drama of God; it is God’s Hamlet, Canterbury Tales, and Wuthering Heights. The Bible is, among other things, about God, men, women, sex, lies, truth, sin, goodness, fornication, adultery, murder, childbearing, virgins, whores, blasphemy, prayer, wine, food, history, nature, poetry, rape, love, salvation, damnation, temptation, and angels. Today the Bible is widely studied but rarely read. If the Bible were a film, it would be R-rated in some parts, X-rated in others. The Bible is not middle class. The Bible is not ‘nice.’”Yes. Totally.
And because I also love Mr. Anderson's commentary on the quote... here's a link to his post. If you're interested in this kind of thing, do yourself a favor and go read it!

Makes me wish I had him for Bible class all three of the years I was at that school instead of just one, because I've certainly had my share of sterile snoozefests - at school AND in church.
