Some believe it is all literal, word for word.
Some do not.
What is to be taken as literal, IMO, is the message/teaching within the Bible.

The lessons to be learned in the Bible were done with parables and in the language of persons who believed in mythology.

However, the religious ideas coming from the word of Christ and the way he presented it, what is still today to be considered the most psychologically sound way of living, is a real inspiration when put into practice.

Considering how many languages the Bible has been translated into I don't see how every word can be the literal word of God as translating some words from one language to another can be difficult.

For instance when I used to do prison ministry we had a young chap from Lithuania attend the bible studies. We managed to get him a copy of the Bible in Lithuanian and it was then that we discovered the word wine had been translated into Vodka in his language. He spent hours going through his Bible looking for the word Vodka.
