In the following paragraph are the names of 25 books of the bible, some are very easy, some are very difficult. THEY ARE ALL THERE... This puzzle has been improved to make it a bit easier; The Bible books are now included, before, they were NOT!


A couple of things to understand: Book numerals are irrelevant in this puzzle (example: 1 Kings = kings); None of the Books are repeated; The names may be found capitalized or uncapitalized, in almost every case, the names are broken up, but they ARE spelled correctly.


I have completed this puzzle and I will give you ONE Hint, the puzzle only requires 25 Books to be found... I was able to find 26 Books ... So, it is doable. - 05/12/2017

"This is a most remarkable puzzle. Someone found it in the seat pocket on a Flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, keeping himself occupied for hours. One Man from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his johnboat. Roy Clark Studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Victs mentioned it in her column Once. One woman judges the job so involving, she brews a cup of tea to calm her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot...that's a fact. Some people will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names Are not necessarily capitalized. The truth is, from answers we get, we are forced To admit it usually takes a minister or a scholar to see some of them at the worst. Something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have. Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation may help: Books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without Their numbers. And punctuation or spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete. Remember, there are 25 books of the Bible Lurking somewhere within this paragraph."
