The typical Christian position is that the Bible is inspired by God, and written by human beings.
When it comes to literalism, the first question you may wish to ask is "Does it matter?" Does a story in the Bible lose its instructional value if it contains biases or fabrications?
Which parts of the bibles typically claimed to be inspired by yahweh ?
If you are asking about Christians, my understanding is that the entire canon is taken to be divinely inspired.
So an inerrant omnibenevolent , omniscient,omnipotent, omnipresent being "Inspired" the contents of some ancient writings authors unknown.
Yet the texts are often in error and contradictory so this would preclude these portions being inspired by an inerrant being as the claim is that the texts are a message for the reader, an instruction/guidance on how to live in accordance to the will of the inerrant being.
The messenger may well have got the message wrong but this would imply that the being chose the wrong messenger which again would preclude its' inerrant omniscience, ie it failed to get what intended to communicate across.
To have alleged "truth" that is riddled with factual error, contradictions and inconsistencies being "inspired" by an omniscient inerrant being is a logical nonsense.
