My friend and I were talking yesterday about books. We both love books and give each other book recommendations. So I thought a pop quiz would be fun today. Do you know what is the best selling book of all-time? Do you know how many copies it has sold?
J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings has sold over 300 million copies but doesn't even come close to the all-time best seller. The best selling book of all-time has sold more than 5 Billion copies. You probably have one in your home or know someone who does or you stay at a hotel that has a copy in the nightstand. Have I given you enough clues to guess??
The best selling book of all-time is the Bible. It is one of my favorite books. It is an all encompassing book. It has family drama, political drama, war, peace, proverbs, love stories, do good stories, and angel stories. I encourage you to pick it up and find a favorite story or proverb. Share it with us.
Here is one angel story from the Bible that is in the first book, "Angel Watching Over Me" about a donkey and a prophet. The prophet was going where he shouldn't have been going with people he had no business being with. He got on his donkey and started to go with the people. An angel stood in the path with a sword in its hand opposing the prophet. The donkey saw the angel but the prophet didn't. The donkey kept turning in another direction away from the angel to spare the prophet's life. This happened three times. Each time the prophet beat the donkey. Then, the Lord opened the donkey's mouth and it spoke. The donkey called the prophet out and then the prophet's eyes were opened to see the angel. The prophet straightened up after that sight and conversation. I think that would certainly get my attention too!
In the kids' book, "Angel Watching Over Me", this story is shortened to 2 rhyming sentences and the illustrator did a great job making it "kid friendly".
May you enjoy reading a best seller today!
