The Bible is made up of the Old Testament and New Testament. How many books are in the whole Bible?
The Bible is made up of the New Testament, which talks about Jesus Christ and the early church, and the Old Testament, which talks about the creation of the world and the history of the Jewish people before Jesus.
While there is some difference between Protestant and Catholic traditions, there are 66 books in the Bible that are accepted as God's Word by all main Christian groups.
All the books are inspired by God and together comprise the written Word of God. While many of the books contain history and specific stories of apostles and men of God of old, they contain inspiration that is applicable to your life today.
So when you read the Bible, don't just read to learn; read to be inspired to and to have God speak to your life!
