Speaking as someone who will dismiss anything regarding faith, I disagree. I know religious people who will say words to the effect of 'this is what I believe , because I want to, and I won't explain or persuade because I can't'. That's about as non-arrogant as it gets.

On the other hand, stating things like the Bible is self validating is leaning in the opposite direction. That's implying that there is objective fact to be discovered if one only looks, but in that case, that's simply not true.
