Some people claim that the Bible is a historical book; however, others are saying it's literary. What do you think?

The Holy Bible is the Word of God which is the truth. Everything is there. God has spoken and His commandments and all that He wants to be done are there. The elements of salvation are in the New Testament. God wills all men to be saved and to come into a full knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:4). Genesis and Exodus are the basics of whatever is now on earth.

I think that Bible is both a somewhat historical book and a work of fictional literature. Some historical events Exodus or some Egypt related events can be learned from it. But it can't be considered a reliable source of historical information, in my opinion.
