Is there any proof that the 40 men who wrote the Bible received their writings from God?

A:

It is only tradition that says forty men wrote the Bible, since many of the books were either written anonymously or pseudepigraphically. In any case, there is no evidence that any of the authors was inspired by God or received the word of God. The evidence of the Bible itself is that the various authors wrote for the political and theological needs of their times, just as any modern author would do.
