Best Books of the Bible

The Top Ten
1 Psalms

There is a psalm in the Bible for every situation and crisis in life. King David is the greatest songwriter of all time. Most Christian songs just talk about God's love and mercy and sacrifice. Psalms talks about justice, being alone, depression, despair, joy, injustice, violence, the wicked, victory over your enemies, confidence, creation, God's power, Jesus and prophecy in a personal way. God cares about our struggles and all these things. What an awesome God

No literature can compare to the beauty, wisdom and praise of the Psalms.

Psalms 83:18. The name of the true God Jehovah is in that verse.

2 Revelation

Book of divine prophecy. Essential to understand the symbols behind the book to understand world history and future events, kingdoms and how what happens in heaven effects what happens on earth. God is the greatest.

I found this book so interesting! It was literally like reading a prophecy!

It gives amazing information.

It's very interesting to read.

3 John

My favorite book of the Bible, it allows you to meet Jesus at a more personal level.

Word to your mother

4 Proverbs

Proverbs offer us an insight into proper conduct and behavior. It offer us tangible, life changing principals. The book of Proverbs presents us with an opportunity to see immediate results upon application.

Book of wisdom and wise principles. If you want a long good life apply the teachings of the book of proverbs

5 Romans

If you are confused by the Gospel books of John Matthew Mark and Luke the book of Romans brings clarity into why Jesus Christ had to die for man's sins.

Jesus Returns to heaven
The Holy Spirit comes to Earth
Peter and others receive power from him
Paul becomes a follower of the Lord.
Love this book

I love the book of Romans. It's really good!

6 Genesis

Favourite book in the Bible because it accounts the origins of mankind, exposes occultism, Satan and sin and accounts of how God created chose a people for himself through one man named Abraham. His convenant and faithfulness to man.

Genesis 3:19 has a sentence at the end of the verse. It reads:"For dust you are and dust you return to."

7 Matthew

Matthew 24:7
"For nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another."

It's sad to believe that these words just came true. This is one of the prophecies that people need to look into the bible.

Sums up the meaning of life and the story of Jesus Christ quite simply.

8 Exodus

An amazing interesting story of an oppressed people being led out of their despair through a miracle and one man striving with the Lord by his side to free the exodus out of Egypt.

There are 10 commandments written in Exodus chapter 20 verses 1-17.

9 Kings
10 Job

Teaches a very important lesson but all of the books in the bible are good

I love this book

The Contenders
11 Philippians
12 Luke
13 Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes 9:11, NWT

"I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all."

14 Daniel

This one so awesome! This book only has 12 chapters but if you read the Bible book the most famous chapters are 6 (Daniel is protected by God) and 3 (The three Boys are saved) which we're pretty familiar with right? I mean don't get me wrong we all know the stories of Daniel and the three Boys

Daniel 2:44. Go to the second chapter. Verse forty four.

15 Numbers
16 Acts

Cool book about the first Christians spreading the Gospel around the world. Also a good outline for Christians today in how to share Christ with others.

Acts and Genesis provides spiritual DNA to define who and what we are. Additionally, Psalms 139 is chromosomes of our existence!

17 Hebrews
18 Mark

Very well written and the outline is well made. The story can be divided into 2,3 or even 5 major themed parts. The only point is that Mark is originally said to have a very abrupt ending. But who knows maybe even that was for a reason!

19 Galatians

Definitely a great book. Talks about receiving salvation through Jesus as opposed to the law. Talks about equality. Spiritual endurance. Fruits of the Spirirt. Also, it's written by Paul, which means its awesome. If I went looking through the Bible highlighting verses, I think Galatians would be full of neon yellow.

It shows the importance of seeing people as children of God, rather than through negative means of judgement. It also shows the importance of following God's inspiration, not just the law of the land.

Fruitage of the spirit

Galatians 5:22, 23

"On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law."

20 1 Maccabees

Maccabees is a book of the Bible; just not of the version evanglicals use today. It was not rejected during canonization as people here seem to think (and no, it wasn't rejected by Jesus).

This shouldn't be on here because this was from the Apocrypha, which contains 13 books that were rejected by Christ when the bible was originally written.

Isn't this from the Apocrypha? Not a real book of the bible.

Not from the Bible.

21 Deuteronomy

King Og is in the book.

22 Tobit
23 Lamentations
24 Judges

Judges is such an interesting and amazing books of the bible, and is also quite entertaining. From Ehud to Deborah, Barak and Jael, to Gideon and many more, Judges is a very amazing book! By regular standards, the top 10 should stay almost the same, but Judges should be around 8 or 9

25 First Book of Samuel

After Jesus, King David is the Bible character that inspires me the most. His life, his passion, his worship, his repentance, his courage are like no other. First and Second books of Samuel are the best thing int he world.
