The Word of God

I was having an interesting conversation with a friend today regarding such religious books as the Bible and the Koran. Just wondering, are such books to be regarded as 1 - quite literally the word of God, 2- interpretations of the word of God by fallible men, or 3 - books written by men who wanted to either change the course of power and authority, or conversely, maintain the status quo?

A secondary line of our conversation threads another line of query: If people claim to be fundamentalists, what does it say about these folks if they only follow certain tenets of such biblical works and not the whole of the work?
