Did you know that the Bible is the best-selling single volume book (every year)? It is estimated that approximate sales of the Bible has been in the range of 2.5 billion to 6 billion. The Bible consists of 66 books that is divided into (2)-two sections: Old Testament (39 books) and New Testament (27 books). The basis of the Old Testament is an account of God’s creation of and direct relationship with mankind, prior to the life of Jesus. The basis of the New Testament is an account of the life and teachings of Jesus and his disciples and the book of revelation.
