Most Influential Books of All Time

The Top Ten
1 The Bible

The MOST influential book of all time, glad to see it above the quaran and stupid 'origin of species' book. atheists think they're so smart, using extravagant words, but they don't even attempt to read a KJV Bible, but of course we evolved from monkeys right? Nope, complete lie, if so, why are there still monkeys around? Just because something looks similar to one thing doesn't mean it IS that thing.

The most influential book to have ever been written. People have tried to erase and discredit it but today it still stands and will still stand even to the end of time. Try reading it, there is a whole lot to learn from it

Not a Christian. Wish this book didn't exist so people could get on with their lives without fear of hell or without homophobia. Would be nice.

I'm not a Christian, but I will agree that this book has shaped world history more than any other (besides the Qur'an).

2 The Qur'an

I can not say much thing about this Holiest book Al-Quran. This book is not only for Muslims but also for every human. And one thing this book is the only book which is not written by any man not even a single alphabet. I respect this book more than I respect myself

This is a book that has been certified not by human but by God himself. Even if you are not a Muslim, read it and you will understand what I have written above.

The only book on Earth that will make you feel stronger than you knew you could feel.

Hoe dare you put these books on they're holy books!

3 The Lord of the Rings
4 Origin of Species

Why is this even a debate? There has never been, nor ever will be a more influential and important idea in the history of this world. This single-handedly challenged everything the bible and all other religious texts have taught us. The theory (excuse me: THE FACT) of evolution is the most profound scientific advancement that the world has ever seen and never has any piece of work changed the way we know things more than natural selection that originated from this book.

This introduced most people to the idea of natural selection, evolution, and every living thing having a common ancestor.

5 The Odyssey

I would have preferred the Aeneid, but anything to get the classics on the list.

6 The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ! It's True!

Such a great book!

7 Uncle Tom's Cabin
8 The Communist Manifesto
9 War and Peace

Can't believe I had to add this.

10 The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
The Contenders
11 Mein Kampf
12 The Wealth of Nations

This practically invented the idea of capitalism as we know it today.

13 Euclid's Elements

Should be in the top 5, why did I have to add it?

14 The Gulag Archipelago - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
15 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
16 Catching Fire
17 The Hobbit
18 Divine Comedy

This is where the common depiction of Christian hell as a fiery place of torment and suffering comes from.

19 Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
20 Mockingjay
21 Common Sense - Thomas Paine
22 The Federalist Papers
23 Relativity: The Special and the General Theory
24 The Republic
25 The Art of War
