The Bible never goes out of fashion. It is a book of history; a book of wisdom (how to live); it is what our laws are based on the well it was what ignorant, Bronze Age desert wanders based on its laws, but fortunately we left most of that "eye for an eye" nonsense behind; but most importantly, it tells us how we can have eternal life. Another answer: The Bible is unique among books in the world. The Bible is the Word of God. Christians come to the Bible for understanding and direction. God is multi-faceted instrument for conforming to the image of His Son. The understanding of the nature of the Bible and approach it with the right attitude is the first step. Our attitude in approaching Scripture should be a humble desire that the Holy Spirit help us to understand the text. The modern society would not be so modern if it had not adhered to the moral codes outlined in scripture. Many of our laws of today have their origin in the Ten Commandments. Another answer: The Bible was written for "the people"... not societies. It is written for those whom God is calling in these last days, to grow in Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding. It is personal, intimate instruction for the mind and the heart of the humble, faithful believer. "...but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My Word." (Isa.66:2) Societies simply benefit or suffer according to the number of people who "believe" or "not believing", as the case may be, in the Bible of the statement. As for its importance to the "modern society"... the humble reader can see the Bible prophecy being fulfilled through the works of the Wicked leaders and lack of systems of "modern society"... its growing rejection of the Bible and the name of jesus Christ. If "modern society", as a whole, had the eyes to see... you could see the signs of the onset of the last days and the unprecedented time Jesus calls "the Great Tribulation", which warns Its humble servants of the clock, to take care, take heart, and believe. "Behold, I have told you before." (Matt.24:25) Jesus warns His servants of one hour of completion of all of the world hatred [by all societies of the earth ] of Christianity, the Christians, and the name of jesus Christ [including the Words of Christ: the Bible]. "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake ." (Matt.24:9), That is Jesus of the first signs to look for in the beginning of the Great Tribulation [see the "5th seal" of Revelation 6]. The people of the world and of their "modern societies"... the Bible means less and less to them as the last days draw to a close and God's plan is nearing its completion. The Bible is the True Significance is not truly understood until the Day of Judgment" when his "books" are opened... and all the generations of man, all societies [ancient and modern] will have the Truth of the Bible reveals them, and each man will give account of your life to your Creator, as measured against the instruction found in the Bible. "...I saw the dead... stand before God; and the books [of the Bible; see John 12:48] were opened : and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works ." (Ap. 20:12-13) God is not going to judge the "societies", when He opens the books of the Bible in the Day of Judgment... He is going to judge "every man" according to their personal works. Whatever the type of societies that have existed throughout history have been the result of the combination of the beliefs of many people... believers and non-believers alike. "And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give to every one [not the whole society] according to his work ." (Ap. 22:12) Another point of view: The Bible is not the most important to modern society than any other religious text, be they Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs, or in fact any other religion. It has historical value, in that they collected several thousands of years ago, and a small percentage of the original wording has survived into the modern era. It has been suggested that The Bible serves as a moral and legal guide of the modernity, however, the content of the Bible does not serve as a positive framework in this capacity, as it encourages slavery, incest, rape, looting, genocide, torture, and many more horrors besides. Also, to make the claim that The Bible reveals some of the secrets of the guide to eternal life is clearly bunkum. Frankly, it takes so much revealed truth as Tolkein revealed in his novels about Middle Earth, when he described the Elves sail into the West. In a nutshell, The Bible offers a violent world view that is mired in superstition and that is about 2010 years out of date. In consequence, it is only important for the modern society as a historical note, and should not be taken literally.
