Most Influential Books of All Time

The Top Ten
1 The Bible The Bible Product Image

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

The reason why it is the most influential book is because it is truly the Word of God...Period.

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

So much of Western Society & Culture is inspired by the Holy Bible.

2 The Qur'an The Qur'an Product Image

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 The Lord of the Rings Product Image
4 Origin of Species Origin of Species Product Image

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 The Odyssey Product Image

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

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