6 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.

7 Matthew

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

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.

I love how this book describes Jesus's miracles. #LovingJesus

8 Kings
9 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.

Also the name of one of my favorit metal bands

10 Luke

The Contenders

11 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."

12 Philippians
13 Job

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

I love this book - Cakecookiespie

14 Numbers
15 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.

16 Galatians

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."

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.

17 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.

18 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. - 1Nyjetsfan6

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

19 Hebrews
20 Deuteronomy

Dude there on to me

King Og is in the book.

21 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 - SirSalvador

22 Colossians
23 1 John
24 Wisdom

Contains a Messianic Prophecy, concerning Our Lord's Passion.

Not a book of the Bible.

25 First Book of Samuel

Great action and adventure

26 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!

27 Song of Solomon
28 Isaiah

Isaiah 2:4 says that, "They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, now will they learn war anymore."

29 Jonah
30 Joshua
31 Esther
32 James
33 Tobit

No, the bible doesn't include the book of Tobit.

34 2 Maccabees

Actually, 2 Maccabees is not from the Bible.

35 Jeremiah

Jeremiah 10:23 from the bible states that humans cannot lead themselves. People mislead themselves by making one mistake after another and they can hurt themselves.

36 1 Corinthians
37 Jude
38 Ruth

Ruth is a beautiful story of love and patience. It is also an amazing book about trusting the Lord and letting Him take control of your life as well as the changes He can and will make in your life if you surrender to Him. Ruth was a Canaanite woman who became an important part of Jesus' lineage.

39 Leviticus

How else am I supposed to learn who to stone to death with stones?

40 Ezekiel
41 1 Kings
42 1 Thessalonians
