Who here has read the bible? Anyone can answer, but Christians especially. - August 20th 2013, 08:50 PM

I'm in the middle of reading it.

I've read:
The Torah
Ruth
Esther
Job
Isaiah
Psalms
Jeremiah
Jonah
The four Gospels
Acts
Romans
Revelation

I switch around. I read half the Torah from a Jewish translation of the Tankah, but that was too hard, so I switched to the NRSV. I followed along in Matthew with a cute movie. I read Mark with a scholarly commentary. The versions I used were the NET bible and the NRSV most of the time. I recommend the NRSV if you're looking for a version.

I read it almost every day.
I also studied it very in depth first semester of last year (I took a Biblical Literature class). I have not read the whole Bible but a great majority of it.

I haven't cover-to-covered it yet, however I have read portions and I'm familiar with all the stories within the bible.

It's the bible that made me become an atheist, honestly.

I go to a Catholic School, so we read the bible quite a lot, whether it be just one verse or a whole chapter I however, on my own, have only read Revelations

I have read a good bit of it over the years. I can't say I have read the entire thing straight through. I have read a lot though, I read the NKJV.

I've read bits and pieces, but only ever through school (we've studied it in RS, and have Bible readings in many services/assemblies), never really by myself, apart from the odd teaching that interested me.


I'm perfectly normal; it's the rest of the world that's insane.

I've read it cover to cover about 3 times, and I try to read random bits of it every day, particularly Psalms or Proverbs

I read most of the old testament back in grade school in hebrew, while in a yeshiva.

I haven't read it cover to cover by any extent of the imagination. But I have read entire chapters within it and large sections all over.

All I know is that I have yet to read anything that makes me want to believe in God. No matter how often I read the Bible I'm still just like "uh.. yeah, this isn't the religion for me"... Which I find interesting cause I've met a lot of Christians who seem to be convinced that if only I "knew the word of God better" then I'd believe and I'm like no, that's not going to happen, like I said, I've read a lot of the bible AND have read many books repeatedly and I am no closer to changing my mind.

I have read the book of James, some of Psalms, a little bit of Isaiah and I believe the book of Esther. But, I am hoping to take a Biblical Literature class next semester so I hope to read more of it then.
