I don't think this poem is about the Bible, or any book specifically.

What is more liberating than being literate?

Funny, not being the least bit religious I never thought of it as the
bible. I think of it as books, any good book, setting your mind and soul
free. ~ I've read many books in my time that have changed my life, opened
doors that I didn't know existed. ~~ The person that turned me on to this
poem died yesterday. He was a very religious man. I suppose that part of
the beauty is it can be about the bible and have that meaning for you and
be about what I need and what it to be about for me.

Wonderful poem. For me also it is about the only one I can recite.

I agree with Tina. It has to be about the Bible!
