I want to challenge everyone to read The Bible in 2010.

Forget about any religious aspects of it, especially if you aren't religious yourself. And
set aside any preconceived notions you may have.

The bible is the most influential book in human history. It is also the all-time best
seller, the most widely known, the most translated, etc. etc.  It's contents are reflected
in countless ways in world culture, in our literature, in our media, in our history.

It's in sum the most important (book of) books ever!  And frankly, many people have never
read it all (or even large portions of it).

I myself have read it in its entirely 3 times and probably read 90% of it a dozen times
over in bits and pieces throughout the years as well as studied its history, making, etc.

Because it can be difficult to read my suggestion is that you begin with what are called
the Christian-Greek Scriptures (aka New Testament) beginning with the Book of Matthew and
read through Revelations. Then start at the beginning, Genesis, and read as much of the
Hebrew-Aramaic (aka Old Testament) as you can get through.

I suggest you use a modern english translation and not something old like the King James

Any efforts at all will make you a better educated person and enlighten you.

This is a challenge to you, to complete it in 2010. Post here your progress or any
thoughts about it that you may have.

the whole thing lol...though truthfully there are parts of lamentations and numbers which
are quite tedious and can probably be skipped over..

but thats why i suggest starting with the Gospels....and getting into the story...
