I found some pretty neat stats as I was studying through the Bible to write the articles on this site. I also found the answers to a lot of questions:
- How long is the Bible compared to other major works?
- What’s the longest book of the Bible?
- What’s the shortest book of the Bible?
- Which biblical authors wrote the most?
- How long should it take to read the Bible?
And I’ve been itching to make an infographic for some time, so I put all these answers (and more) here!
If you like the Bible and you’re a numbers geek, you’ll want to read and share this infographic.
Want to use this infopgraphic?
Every once in a while someone will ask me if it’s OK to use this infographic in a sermon, or Bible study, or as a resource on a church website.
My answer: Go right ahead.
