The Bible

What non biased source can confirm that the Bible is the number one selling book?

You can call the publishers for the last 300 years and ask them. The sheer number of copies published in various countries in multiple languages pretty much makes it a surety. Even Mao's Little Red Book, or the Koran haven't come close to hitting the numbers.

The estimates are that over 5 billion copies of the Bible have been printed and sold or given away. Mao's Little Red Book is around 900,000 and the Qu'ran is at 800,000.

Perhaps Amazon or Publishers Clearing House.
