The Bible is a book of contradictions. It's the bestselling book in the world -- and, possibly, the least likely to be read cover-to-cover. Even devout Christians put on the spot, would be hard-pressed to tell someone what happens in the Old Testament book of Obadiah, or the difference in the philosophical messages of Ephesians and Galatians.
Well, in everyone's defense, the Bible is a long and dense book. For that reason, what people often focus on is individual verses which they find meaningful. Even if you're a nonbeliever, you probably know some of them. For example, you've undoubtedly seen "John 3:16" signs held up at sporting events, and you can probably finish the verse itself, which begins, "For God so loved the world ..."
There are profound and meaningful verses in all books of the Bible. The Old Testament starts with history books, then proceeds through the Psalms and Proverbs into the books of prophecy. Here you'll find Cain's famous statement about his brother Abel, well-known verses from the beloved 23rd Psalm, and Isaiah's predictions of the coming of Christ. The New Testament gives us the gospels, the letters of the apostles, and one remarkable book of apocalyptic literature. Here you'll find Jesus's words from the Sermon on the Mount, including the Lord's Prayer, Paul's reflections on love in 1 Corinthians 13, and more.
