I have always enjoyed the book of Psalms. I love to hear and write poetry. Psalms just speaks the most to me of all the books of the bible. I can always find something to soothe my soul in Psalms.

The Psalms are incredible! I love the fact that the Book of Psalms captures practically every human emotion in the spectrum. There's joy, happiness, peace, despair, depression, anger, laughter, praise, and the list goes on. It just shows how "human" the individuals that wrote the Psalms were. Sometimes we think of people in biblical times as some sort of superhumans who never had a problem. But the fact is that they were humans just like us. They had problems, some fought with depression, had anger issues, etc. The most incredible thing I have read is when talking about King David. Here was a man who committed adultery then had the woman's husband killed so he could marry her. Yet David is still known today as "the man after God's own heart". The only thing that could explain that is the depth of God's forgiveness (Psalm 51). My favorite Psalms are 37, 46, and 91. But there are so many more that mean so much to me!

I like the book of Revelation. Most of the people thing this is a scary book. All it mention is about the end of the world. But I like to look it in different way. How I see the Book Of Revelation? I see it as how our life when we are one God in heaven. All of the wonderful thing in heaven was mention. Witnessing the wedding of the Lamb and his bride. The singing choir day and night worshiping the KING. Oh.. how wonderful it is in heaven.

The Letter to the Philippians is my favorite of all time! There is so much joy and happiness conveyed through that letter from Paul. The ironic thing is that when he wrote this letter, he was in a prison cell. It just makes me think that if he could have joy and peace in that situation, what is stopping me from having joy in my life with the things I go through.

Definitely 1 Peter because it is simple gospel but he applies it to broader every day themes such as marriage, suffering, and church leadership.

My favourite books are Psalms and Isaiah. I love to read Psalms because it's a book of Praises. The more we praise the more we can overcome SATAN and temptations that he brings along. I also love to read Isaiah because it's full of promises for our lives. Whenever I am down, I used to turn my bible to the book of ISAIAH and there I'll find so many promise words. I love Jesus and his Word. For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do Not fear I will help You. Amen.

my favorite book in the bible that i always read are the book of Daniel,and the book of Revelations of the New Testament. Why? I always fascinated and interested with the Prophecy of the future written in the Holy Scriptures. And aren't we didn't wonder that some of the prophecy had already fulfilled? Read it and you will know why.

Aaah. Another difficult question to answer. Try as I may, I cannot give just one Book coz i like many books equally. Almost all of them cept for Numbers and the first part of Chronicles with all the names and such.heheheh. I love the poetry books! They're simply beautiful and so much wisdom especially in proverbs and Ecclesiastes. I also love 1&2 Kings. SO many evil kings and so much suffering but through it all God remembered His servant David. Ruth was a great story about loyalty and faithfulness. And Revelation...it is exciting. I love that book as well. And the more you read the Bible, You can't help loving more and more books... I dunno when i will start loving Numbers and Chronicles though...but let us not lose hope! heheh.

My favorite book is Revelation because it tells us what to expect before the end of the world, and the fact it is a prophetic book like Daniel is. Actually, the 2 bookd go together as they both tell about the end of the world, and we should heed them both and be ready so we will go to heaven when Jesus comes back for hos own. Take care, and may God bless you.
