The bible is the top selling book for many many years now.
Since the printing press was invented by German inventor Johannes Gutenberg produced a copy as the first book to be printed. That was in the 15th Century AD. The Bible has been on the N.Y. Times best seller list since 1953. The Bible is for sure the best selling book ever . even a great many people all over the world who are not Christians own Bibles .
Bible? ANSWER: It would of course depend on your definition of the word popular, if you are looking at the best selling book of all time then it would be The Bible. However if you were to define popularity differently and ask people what book they enjoyed more than any other I would venture that you would get not only a different book title but a list almost as long as the list of books…
the bible by book I've read the new testament in thirteen days. see the bible is meant to be read by the means that you always find something new in it. the old testament takes a lot longer it took me by book at least three months so it is quite long but it's good to read the bible each and every day and meditate within it.
A: Tradition holds that first five books of the Bible, the Pentateuch, was written by Moses long before 1040 BC. It is also generally believed that the Book of Judges was probably written by a contemporary, prior to this date. In fact, the Pentateuch is now knwn to have been written many centuries later, during the first millennium BC. No book of the Bible was written before 1010 BC.
No the Bible makes no mention of the Quran. Islam was founded by Mohammed in the seventh century but the Bible was written long before that. Some parts (in the Old Testament) were written around 400-600BC, and even the latest book in the New Testament is likely to have been written around 100AD, 500 years before Islam was ever thought of.
What is the difference between the Bible and The Iliad which the Greeks were convinced explained the Trojan war as others are that the Bible explains things?

Since then, the city of Troy, central to the Iliad, has been located and the book has been found by scholars to reflect life during the Greek Mycenaean period.

There is no reliable historical record of St. Nicholas, and some say he existed only in legend. Many of the St. Nicholas stories do seem to be imagination interwoven with at most a grain of truth. In any case, Nicholas is said to have lived in the fourth century, long after the Bible was completed. There is no book of the Bible that mentions Saint Nicholas.
According to tradition, Moses wrote the complete Torah scroll (Deuteronomy 31:24) as instructed by God (ibid 1:3), in the Arvot Moab, which is the Jordan river area east of the river and on a latitude near that of Jericho. Note that many verses in the Torah and Prophets (such as those containing "until this day") are predicting the future. This indicates prophecy, not late authorship.

Their is only one real bible! It was inspired by men of God. Their are no other bibles. Their are other books that are meant to be the bible but to me they will not even be counted close to the real word of God! The only bible that is true is the 1611 King James version translated by King James himself a long time ago. Man has taken God's word and has re-written it…
Ezekiel was a priest in the temple at Jerusalem towards the end of the monarchy in Judah, and was then deported to Babylon in 597 BCE, and wrote his book there. Scholars point to numerous glosses and additions, that would have been completed long after Ezekiel's death, perhaps in Jerusalem.
