The Bible is the record of God’s action in this world, and the purpose of his creation. It is the work of forty or more human authors which the writing took place sixteen centuries ago. Its collection of books is 66, which is quite remarkable and has different styles, which all contain God’s message that he wants to deliver to us.
The booklet compilation has an astonishing variety of literary styles. It gives a lot of stories about bad and good people’s lives, about journeys and battles, about Jesus’ life and the activities of the early church. It is delivered through dialogues and narratives, in parables, and proverbs, in allegories and songs, prophecy, and history.
The Bibles accounts are not written down, generally like how they occurred. But, the stories are told many times and passed down for many years, before people even write it. Yet similar themes are found throughout this book. With the diversity, you can also find a unity throughout that is remarkable. Besides this list, you can also check out more bible facts.
