The Books I Picked & Why

Holy Bible

By Unknown

Book cover of Holy Bible

Why this book?

For years, I would just skim through it as the pastor would say, “Turn in your Bibles to this passage.” But by the time I was twenty-seven, it hit me that this book was a must-read that produces faith. Thus began my journey of reading for self-revelation, healing, growth, but most of all, faith.

I love it because no matter how old it is, it lends messages of hope, healing, and restoration that cannot or should not be ignored. The greatest value I’ve gotten from the Bible is the power of love.
