    What's your favorite book of the Torah (if you like the matzah) or the Bible (if you like the blood and body on Sundays)? Additionally, for the Christians (or general literary people- I've read most of the Bible and I'm quite the atheist), what's your favorite Gospel?

    My favorites were probably Proverbs and Joel (semi-obscure minor prophets FTW!).

    I'm partial to the Book of Kings. Solomon is wise, but there is a lot of ugly political treachery and manipulation in it as well- rather than being purely virtuous, this is a showing of real rule and the attempt to be good.

    My favorite Gospel is Luke. Feminist, progressive, well-written, positive, and keeps intact Jesus' condemnation of the idle rich.
    I'm a big believer in C.W.A.S (Christ Was A Socialist), and Luke seems to be very supportive of this- that no matter what the rich that hold onto any of their possessions or glorify capital are evil and inferior to the virtuous poor.

    My favourite books are Samuel i-ii and Kings i-ii.
    My favourite parts are of King David's life, and the prophet Elijah.

    My favorite books so far have been 1 and 2 Samuel. I liked reading the story of Saul and David.

    My favorite Gospel is probably John. It's a lot different than the others and goes more in depth about Jesus' arrest, crucifixion, and resurrection.

    I like Genesis, because it's the only one that's not incredibly boring. I mean, the endless list of names upon names is, but at least some action happens. :D
