The Christian Holy Book is called 'The Bible', and is a useful source of evidence as it contains details of earlier people's experience of God. It's written by humans, so limited by human language and knowledge, but they were inspired by God in what they wrote, so it's often called the 'Holy' Bible.
The individual books were put together when Greek was the language used by scholars, so the title 'Bible' is a Greek word that just means 'Books'. It's divided into two sections, the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Bible references are included in the Modules to justify the comments made. You might like to use the Bible to check-out some of them.
To help us find a particular passage, Bible references are divided into:
Book, Chapter : Verse
eg: Gen 1:5 = The Book of Genesis, chapter 1 : verse 5.
Gen 1:1-28 = The Book of Genesis, chapter 1 : verses 1-28 inclusive.
(The abbreviation Ch = The Whole Chapter)
Most Bibles have an index at the front or back to explain the book name abbreviations and to show what page each book starts on.
