But surely as a Christian there should be another book in my list…the Bible!

Why is it when we talk about books we always exclude the Bible?

I do read the Bible a lot, and yes I’ve read some parts of it countless times, sometimes for guidance, sometimes for inspirations, sometimes for encouragement, sometimes to reassure me, other times, just because…

Make the Bible the most read book on your bookshelf (both your physical bookshelf and your electronic bookshelf).
