I’m not sure a modern evangelical would use Bavinck’s language to speak of inspiration:

So also the word [the Bible], the revelation of God, entered the world of creatureliness, the life and history of humanity, in all the human forms of dream and vision, of investigation and reflection, right down into that which is humanly weak and despised and ignoble. . . .
