If referring to the Apostle John of the New Testament, he is commonly attributed with writing the Gospel of John, 3 letters of John (I John, II John, and III John) as well… as the Book of Revelation. It should be noted (as many believe) that the only 'author' of the Bible is God as is recorded in Exodus 34:27 to Moses and 2 Timothy 3:16 to the New Testament Church. Books attributed to 'writers' is simply them being inspired by God to record His message to all mankind.

Confucius didn't write any books. Years later his followers put together books called the analects, which were books of his sayings and teachings. Confucius wrote five bo…oks which make up the Cannons of Confucianism and are accepted by all Chinese as part of their heritage. The books are: Chun Chiu (Spring and Autumn); Shu Ching (Book of History); Shih Ching (Book of Poetry); Li Chi (Book of Rites); and I Ching (Book of Changes).

Tradition says that Moses wrote 5 books: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. However, there is no claim as to authorship made within the books themselves. Mod…ern scholars who support the Sources Theory say that the Pentateuch had several authors and was only written during the first millennium BCE, a view that is also accepted by some Christians. After all, a late date for the Pentateuch does not undermine the message of the Bible. A: Traditionally, Moses is thought to have written the first five books of the Old Testament, known to Christians as the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy). However, it is the strong consensus of biblical scholars that Moses did not write any of the Old Testament, and that the scriptures only began to be written many centuries after the time attributed to Moses. On this evidence, Moses did not write any books.

Shakespeare did not write very many things with the intention of having them published. His narrative poems Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were both printed by an ol…d schoolmate from Stratford and contained effulgent testimonials to Shakespeare's patron who had helped financially to get the publication off the ground. These two poems were the only things Shakespeare clearly wrote with the intention that they should be read as books. Everything else he wrote was published by someone else, not infrequently without his permission and certainly never to his profit. He wrote sonnets which were intended for private distribution but ended up being published anyway. He also wrote plays which he intended that people should pay money to come and watch, rather than stay at home and read. Having people read the plays was contrary to his financial interest. Many of them (about half) were not published in any form until after his death.
