    The Book of Daniel - It is the solid foundation which holds history fulfilled and future foretold. The Babylonian kingdom, the Medes and Persians, the Greece, the Romans, and our present kingdom all foretold and fulfilled. Amazing!!!!!!!!!! No one can deny it. Now the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to reign on the earth will be fulfilled.Praise God He's coming for us.

    I like Psalms and Revelation. I honestly have not read the bible in its entirety. I, for some reason, can't sit down and read often, but when I do, I read the bible. I have it on audio, this question actually reminded me of this so I will start listening to it every day! So thank you! smile

    My favorite book in the Christian bible is James. Its like a brief analysis of the Christian lifestyle. But then again I also like the Corinthians because of the definition of love in the 13th chapter.

    Paul's letter to the church at Philippi, The Book Of Philippians. First, Paul's letters are the portions of the Bible that is most immediately, directly addressing 'us' . . . by 'us' I mean New Testament believers, disciples of Jesus of Nazareth,... read more

    My favorite book of the Bible is Revelation. I'm amazed how it is based on all the other prophetic books and pulls them all together and shows how God's plan is to be fulfilled. I've been heavily studying it for a couple years now (and teaching it) as it is quite difficult to interpret and decide what it is telling the reader. However, I'm learning that the more one studies the Bible and biblical background, the smoky confusion begins to clear.

    Greeting to all in the name of Jesus: Of course we all like St. John 3:16 informing us -that Jesus is given for the life of the world.  But, now having studied why Jesus is called the "son of David" & likewise, "son of man", I like the Book of Psalms.  Psalm 4 states that God did enlarge "ME" (the place/stand of Jesus) when our "I" was in distress and is clearly  sustantiated  in St. John 17.  The book of Psalms when rightly divided will show Jesus in every scripture and,that, often twofold.  It shows Him praying to the Father in our stead... whether through the spirit of our weaknesses/ infirmities as seen through the window of our soul in His having on us or else we may see the strength of His prayer in overthrowing our doubts, fears, infirmities through the higher spoken word of truth which is seen through the window of His soul, overcomeing where we had stood in the old man Adam, in the sinking miry clay, etc.  This is a great  enlightenment unto our eyes of understanding.  Psalms shows that He did indeed bear (and even likewise bare as in to uncover) all our infirmities.  In fact, amazingly so... It is the sweet psalmist of Israel, David, (who said, that he always foresaw the LORD before seeing his own face in scripture) it is the powerful anointed words  spoken in the psalms whereby Jesus was raised from the dead and conquered death and hell on our behalf. Alleluia! (and Oh, I only read the KJV version... believing it closest in purity to  the original scrolls).

    Wow, it's hard to choose just one. Proverbs is great for every day wisdom. Psalms is soothing at night. The gospels tell us about the life of Christ. Oh well, I guess I'll settle on Philippians.

    Jeremiah, because it represents God's judgment upon people and nations when they become insouciant to His commandments, which, generally speaking, is seldom taught in America as it once was.

    Job because it is easy to read, especially in The Message translation.  It gives the great story of a man who had it all, had it all taken away from him , and in the end, because of his faithfulness, had it more than  enough restored back to him!

    Wow as others said it is hard to pick just one. I love Jeremiah and Ezekiel in the Old Testament and in the New I just cannot ever preach without a reference to the Gospel of John.

    My favorite book of the Christian Bible is Proverbs for several reasons. Not only is it quite poetically beautiful, I find it directly applicable in my own life for its logical guidance and advisement, credible source of information and due to the fact that I can identify with both the parent and child roles which provide the structure and format for message delivery throughout the book. While many other books of the Christian Bible appeal to me for various other reasons, I feel that due to these factors Proverbs provides me with the most direct practical application benefit.

    Ecclesiastes -
    "What has been will be again,   what has been done will be done again;  there is nothing new under the sun."
    "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:"
    Because it is were I got all my answers to my life questions.

    I have many favorite books.  John because it is all about the life of Christ and his work on this earth and it teaches us the way we should live our lives in a Christ like manner.  The words "I tell you the truth." mean so much to me.  I know I can depend on what it is saying to me.  The book of Psalms is also one of my favorites because it is a good book to read when life seems down and hard to manage.  I love the letters that Paul writes to all the churches because they seem to explaine how we as a church should function and it also deals with some of the same problems that churches today have.  I love the whole Bible in its entirety.  I don't ever read the same passages and they mean the same thing as before.  Something new jumps out and gives you a different meaning to what it is saying..  It is a book that is always new and always up to date with life now as well as life in biblical times.  It is always a fresh book that will tell you the absolute truth no matter what book you read or what year you read it.
