The Good Book. The number-one selling book of all time. The living, breathing, inspired Word of God. God's message to us on how we can find the only way to him---through Jesus his Son, so we can obtain salvation. Composed of the New and Old Testaments and 66 smaller “books,” the Bible was written over thousands of years from Moses (who wrote Genesis) around 3000 BC to John the Revelator (who wrote Revelation) at the end of the first century. The general theme of the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is that human beings are stuck in the middle of a spiritual war between God and Satan for the souls of mankind. Luckily, the Cross of Jesus Christ, the central figure of the Bible, allows human beings to choose which side they will swear allegience to. The Old Testament looks FORWARD to a coming Messiah and the Cross for our redmeption, while the New Testament looks BACK at the Cross. The Bible opens with the creation of the Universe and “the fall” of mankind and finishes with the Great White Throne Judgement, when all evil (including Satan and his followers) will be thrown into the Lake of Fire, putting an end to evil once and for all. The Bible is used for reporoof, for correction, for teaching and instructing in the way that human beings need to live. The Bible calls itself a “sword,” proving that it is very divsive among people. Yes, the truth will be divisive but effective to save the lost. People have tried to disprove it for centuries but it will never happen. Its message will NEVER be destroyed as it claims, proving to be the true Word of God Almighty.
The Bible is the guide for human beings to live by so that we may have hope.

This is definitely the greatest book ever written, especially since it is non-fiction. The term "Bible" means something related to "a series of books". That is true, as the Bible is filled with dozens of books, and also chapters within those individual books. The making of the Bible began roughly 3,000 years ago with the various Hebrew (Jews) authors, with the first writings made in about 1450 B.C. They would continue to be added and compiled all the way through the 400 B.C.'s. The making of the Bible and the writings was stopped for a few centuries because the Ancient Greeks conquered and ruled The Middle East, including Jerusalem, at this time.
It would later continue, however, after those few centuries by A.D. 45, which was the beginning of the New Testament (detailing the life, times, and teachings of Jesus Christ). Additional writings would be added all the way up to A.D. 95, then culminating in the Bible's completion with the writing of the Book of Revelation. This great work of non-fiction was written over this course of about 1500 years by forty different Hebrew authors of all backgrounds and occupations. Today, it is the book by which these same billions of Christians (and the Old Testament by the Jews) live by. It is a guide to all Christians. It instructs you on how God wants you to live your life, as the Ten Commandments are also included.
The Bible is now available in several different versions, and is also printed in many various languages, so that all may understand and be more easily able to follow the teachings and the message from the Good Book.

A book that people don't even bother to read and bash it anyway.

If people would read it for once, then maybe they'd have a better understanding of it instead of saying it's a work of "fiction" when we have no right to do so.

The Bible has been contradicted many times, and none of them were ever proven. And the Bible is in perfect harmony with science, unless you consider evolution "science' (which is the only thing it could possible disagree with).

And the Bible does have reference to murder, corruption, homosexuality, bestiality, incest and cruelty. But I wonder what people are suggesting when they say this, because the Bible condones none of these things.

As if these things are uncommon now.
The Bible is a great book that people need to actually flip through before making ignorant comments about it being fictional.

The most widely read fictional book in the history of mankind. Often mistaken as a true story.
Person 1: OMG you need to read the Bible!
Person 2: Why? I can write a better story than that. How can anyone believe it?

The most important book ever written, despite what the loser atheists waste their time saying.
Person with a life: The Bible is a good reference when you need help.

Loser who should go move to a planet with other losers: "The Lord of the Rings" was a better book than the Bible.
