5 Books of the Bible that ALL Christians Should Study and Share with Others

I read a report today that really scared me because it detailed how daily readership of the Bible has hit an all-time low in the United States.

Sadly, this has been an on going trend for the past 20 years, most of my life, and something has to be done ASAP to help encourage more and more people to pick up the Bible and read it; not just when we’re attending Church services, but at home, or the park, or anywhere we like to read.

What’s baffling to me is that the Bible has everything in it that a great book or novel has in it today: betrayal, murder, and even crazy twists.

If you’ve never read the Bible, then trust me, you’re REALLY missing out. There’s more than one reason why it’s referred to as the ‘Good Book.’

It really is a good book, a great book actually, and more people, Christians and non-Christians alike, need to pick it up on a daily basis and read it.

Why Should We Read The Bible More?

When we read the Bible we’re getting to know God. His Word is alive and changes us when we read it.

I’m asking everyone reading this to try and get someone you know, including yourself, to give these books in the Bible a read this week:

#1 – Book of Job

One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them. The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.”

Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” Job 1:6-8

Just reading Job is eye-opening. We get a glimpse of what God will allow in our lives. If we read carefully, we see God didn’t make bad things happen to Job but He did allow them. The same is true with us.

#2 – Book of Genesis

And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 3:15

God makes clothes to cover Adam and Eve when they recognize their nakedness. It’s the first animal sacrifice and it’s to cover them because of their sin of disobedience.

The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. Genesis 3:21

Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross later is the ultimate covering for each of us. There are so many incredible ways to see Jesus in the book of Genesis. God already had His plan for us set in motion.

#3 – Book of Daniel

The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.” Daniel 2:47

It’s amazing how God worked through him and gave him not only the meaning of the King’s dream but showed Daniel the actual dream, too. His life and the lives of others depended on it.

#4 – Gospel of John

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

The Gospel of John brings everything together and ties it up neatly with a bow. Like any well-written book, the first sentence is captivating.

#5 – Book of Revelation

Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. Revelation 1:3

Sometimes, we just need a few words of peace and comfort from the Bible. If you’re seeking comfort then head to the book of Psalms.

What Are Your Favorite and Most Beloved Parts of the Bible

What makes you want to pick up the Bible everyday and read it? What about the Bible should we share with others?

Please let me know so I can share these with my friends and family, because my favorite parts of the Bible may not be yours, and I’m always intrigued by what makes people want to read the Bible everyday like I do!

Let’s do our best to help booster readership of the Bible as much as we can!

  1. I find it helpful to do different types of Read the Bible Through the Year studies so that I don’t just stick with my favorites and gloss over others. When we look at the Bible as a complete meta-narrative, which our personal narrative fits into, it takes on so much more meaning.

    1. Dear Christian Tech Nerd,
      Today, May 12th, 2022 I saw a picture of who I thought was you on your post dated April 20, 2022. I’ve seen your blog picture and I think you are very pretty, however, if the picture I am talking about is you with your hair let down, then, please accept this compliment as nothing but above board – I think you are absolutely beautiful. Any man lucky enough to get to know you and spend time with you will be very lucky indeed. I hope this doesn’t come across as superficial but as a Christian, like yourself, I wanted you know that God outdid Himself when He gave you life. May God continue to bless you daily.
      In Christ,

  2. As far as favorite books to read I would have to say Psalms and Philippians, especially when in need of comfort or perseverance. When you realize the situations that Paul and many of the psalmists were in when writing these words it enriches the reading even more.

  3. One of the problems we have as a culture is that we are too used to the stories. One of my favorite things when O was teaching middle school Sunday School was the day I would tell the kids the story of Joshua Davidson and Rocky Johnson, and I’d wait to see how many kids would figure it out and when. I think we need more biblically inspired fan-fic. My son has been watching a bunch of Transformers clips from pretty much every series on YouTube lately, and it occurred to me that it would be really fun to do a reimagining of Bible stories with Transformers characters.

    1. I must confess to skipping over most of the ‘begat’ Books of the Old Testament.

      Nehemiah for example, I don’t get much from:

      10And Jeshua begat Joiakim, Joiakim also begat Eliashib, and Eliashib begat Joiada,

      1. The genealogy while not that interesting to read is incredibly important, particularly to the Jews. The gospel of Matthew contains genealogy to prove that Jesus fulfilled the prophecies that Messiah would come from the royal line of David. I think the genealogies are yet another proof that the bible is what it claims to be: God’s word.

      2. Because the prophets indicated Messiah would come from the lineage of king David. Any claim as Messiah would have to pass the test.

        The gospel of Matthew was written for a Jewish audience which is why it begins with the lineage of Jesus and also shows fulfillment of many other messianic prophecies. This shows them (and us) that Jesus is the promised Messiah.

  4. Add Philippians to the list, I just finished an in-depth study of it and it is now my favorite book. Every chapter is so encouraging for our walk with Christ!

  5. You are such a treasure of a woman and person, I love your passion for the Lord and His word. I would like your help if possible, since you are the Christian Tech-Nerd, you have gift far beyond your beauty, I need suggestion with my website and helping me share the gospel. Love you, your brother in Christ, Samuel H.

  6. What’s interesting for me here Sister, is that moments before reading his posting I had just written about Job in a very important reply comment. And he has always been a source of strength and inspiration for me; especially when going through some personal trials of protracted anguish! Amen.

  7. I find your blogs’ words encouraging, but I become concerned with how often you present yourself in lovely pictures, especially ones like this that are provocative for men who are weak… like me. Dear sister, you need to lose some of your vanity and focus on graphics that will enhance your blogs and not detract from them. ❤️&🙏, c.a.

    1. All due respect, dear brother, but I don’t think she’s at fault. It is wrong to make her responsible for your weakness. The best thing, if I may offer advice which has helped me, is to work on yourself, and make it a daily prayer to the Holy Spirit to make you stronger. And I’m certain He’ll answer you. He certainly answered me. Love and light, bro.

    1. Revelation is such an underrated book, beloved! I was blessed to study the book, not as one looking for how and when the world will end (which is what most of us tend to do), but as one looking for messages that God had to give. And boy those messages were many.

  8. Some years ago, I was bedridden for a week due to surgery. My mom gave me a number of books because she knows I like reading. One of these books was ‘The Richest Man in Babylon. As I read it, I was shocked to see that all those proven facts for wealth building and management are actually comfortably sitting in the Book of Proverbs.
    The Bible is an incredible book, and my favourite books are Ecclesiastes (because it reminds us of the vanity of this world, and what really matters) and John (because it’s so daring in its putting forward of Jesus as The One; I came to he conclusion, from reading John, that Jesus was either raving I-have-flown-off-the-shelves-and-out-the-window mad, or He is Who He said He is). I dig your posts. Remain blessed.

  9. I should be reading the Bible more than I do… I feel like a lot of my lack of spiritual connection as an adult has been because I just don’t fit in anywhere at church. Any church. When you’re in your 20s and under, there are church groups for your age that become a built-in friendship group. Since I hit my 30s, I just don’t fit in anymore, because everyone my age has children and then grandchildren and completely different interests and lifestyles from me. And churches that aren’t like that either are full of people who don’t take their faith seriously, they only go to church because it’s part of their culture, or they water down the message so much to stay culturally relevant that they ignore or even encourage sin.

  10. Amen!!! The Bible is our source for knowing God, knowing His command which gives us direction on how to live and we see in the Bible the story of redemption through our Lord Jesus Christ. The fact that we are all sinners and yet God has provided the way of salvation should give us the desire to want to know Him more. Of course we do this by reading and studying the Bible. I have been studying the Bible for over 25 years and it never gets old. I learn every time I study. You can use my website as a resource for anyone looking for expositional Bible studies. I have many topic expositions along with some books of the Bible that I’ve completed and I am still working on. Great Article!!! Thank you for being so upfront as people need this so much in todays society.

  11. I use the YouVersion Bible app, that keeps me on track, and the streak initiative is amazing.

    So, before I get out of the bed, when I wake up, I read a scripture in the Bible, or a Bible plan, mediate on the word that I’ve read. This builds up the desire to devour the word of God daily.

    I love all the books in the Bible, so much to learn, discover and know about God.
    My favorite book is John.

  12. Defining the Bible as 73 books (per the Council of Trent), I have developed a great attachment to First Maccabees. (The best translation of First Maccabees is in The Revised English Bible, 1989, by the way.) First Maccabees is about struggles to remain faithful under foreign occupation and religious persecution then afterward.

  13. Good choices. I’m getting ready to preach on Revelation 1 this weekend. I memorized Ephesians about 30 years ago as a young pastor and still have it memorized today. I found I couldn’t avoid referencing something in Ephesians every time I preached or taught. And it’s so practical as well. Job is good if you can follow the flow of the arguments. I’ve got a Master’s Degree in Hebrew, and it still took me three or four reads through Job and circles and arrows on connected passages to see the flow.

  14. My favorite book of the Bible has been Psalms for many years. Not only because it is the “prayer book of the Bible,” as Dietrich Bonhoeffer called it, but also because of the range of emotions that are displayed within. My “life verse” is Psalm 86:11. “Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.” There are also part of Isaiah that are tremendous. One of my favorite verses for about ten years has been Isaiah 41:10.”fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

  15. I really like this post, and I LOVE the Bible!! These five books are among my favorite books. I would add Romans, Hebrews and James to the list. James is so practical, and Romans and Hebrews are kind of like the legal documents of Christianity. Thank you for following my blog!

  16. God really speaks to me though His Word. There is no way I am smart enough to understand what I do, so it has to be Him. He gives me deeper meanings or whole new ones even on the same passages. Thank you for your encouragement in getting into God’s Word. That is so good to see today.

  17. My favorite Old Testament book is Genesis – so much there that lays the foundation for everything else. My favorite New Testament book is Acts. It links the gospels with the epistles and Revelation. (Can you imagine the NT without Acts? We would be so confused. “Church at where?” “Who’s Paul?” etc.) My favorite chapters are Isaiah 53 in the OT and Romans 8 in the NT.
    Years ago, I decided to memorize longer passages of Scripture. It bothered me the way verses were being quoted out of context, so I committed to memory some popular verses and the ones around them. I started with the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and chapters like [my favorites] and some Psalms. Then I learned James, Philippians, I John (and added II and II John, since they could both fit onto one page 😉 ) and I Peter. Since then I have just been reading through the Bible, and when I come to something I used to know by heart, I’ll review it until I get it back. Besides wanting to know Scripture in context, I have always been aware that there are places in the world where people don’t have Bibles, and if someday ours are taken from us, we will have to rely on what we remember.
    Blessings!

    PS I clicked on “CONTINUE,” thinking it was part of your post, but it was part of an advertisement. I got all kinds of alarm signals and “WARNING-WARNING-WARNING” and emergency signs filling up my screen, and my computer locked up. I had to shut everything down for a while and turn it back on. I see that “CONTINUE” button is in multiple places on this post, and needless to say, I avoided them after that. I’m thinking you would know more I do about what happened and what to do, since you’re a “tech nerd,” and I’m … the opposite (technologically challenged). I just wanted to let you know. It may have just been my computer, but it was disturbing.
