    What Is Your Favorite Book Of The Bible?

    Of course I love the Gospels, the Letters of Paul, etc... But by far the book I love the most is the Psalms. I read from it every morning, in the King James of course. There is something about them that really speaks to me...
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

It helps that Jonah is short and sweet, whereas Job, which has a similar ending, is much longer. There is less monologuing in Jonah, which I prefer. Plus, "I'm so angry I wish I were dead."

    Yeah, it is the book that convinced me about Christianity and helped me understand the gospel. I think if there were only one bible book available to a person, Romans would be probably the best one to have in order to get saved.
