I am sure that you are searching for a much deeper answer than what was given. I believe that it is the inspired words of Jehovah himself to his creation, even though he worked THRU human hands, it is his thoughts and his characteristics.It is a book that holds the rules that Jehovah feels as a Heavenly Father to his children for their protection and it is in the childrens best interest to go by these rules. It also encourages the down and depressed. It comforts in times of grief and despair. It gives us hope and shows us just how much his children are loved for and cared about. It tells of a place that we are promised if we only submit ourselves to a loving Heavenly Father.
Bible, Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, and Doctrine & Covenants. My church says specifically: We believe the Bible to be the Word of God as far as it is translated correctly. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.....The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth". John 1:1,14

For millions of years men have been writing the TRUE words of god - it's being written, & it'll never be finished while man has life. The true words of god are, all the facts that we know, all that's truly recorded, all the discoveries & inventions, all the struggles for the right, liberty and freedom, the victories of heart and brain, the histories of noble deeds, the quenchless mother-love, the brave and useful men, all the sufferings for the truth, all the wisdom that ennobles life, all that prevents or cures disease, or conquers pain, all the just laws & rules that guide & shape our lives, all thoughts that feed the holiness of love, the music that transfigures, enraptures and enthralls, the secrets told by rock & star, by rain & snow, by frost & flame, by mountain range & billowed sea, the miracles that labouring hands have wrought, the deft hands of those who worked for wife and child, of faithful loving wives, of all the best that all the men and women of the world have said, and thought and done through all the years. These treasures of the human heart and brain - are the Sacred Scriptures of mankind and these are the TRUE words of god.
