authority of the Bible

I read a paper today about one man’s position on women serving in a church. This man was writing to critique those who think that women ought to be able to serve as pastor in a church. His point was not that he thinks women aren’t qualified. Nor did he give any reasons as to why women ought not serve as a pastor.

However, he simply submitted that we must look the Bible as the ultimate authority and the final authority.

My question:
What does it mean when a person says that the bible is “authoritative” or the bible is the “ultimate authority for life?”
