A Paragraph Summary of Each Book of the Bible

- Daniel – 12 Chapters
Daniel includes several of the most famous stories in the Bible, including Daniel in the Lions’ Den. You will definitely want to read the first six chapters of Daniel soon after you start reading the Bible. The last chapters are very symbolic and difficult to understand, though. You may want to put off reading them until later.
- 1 Corinthians – 16 Chapters
First Corinthians is a letter written to the most corrupt Christian church specifically addressed in the Bible. Appropriately, Chapter 13 is one of the most famous in the Bible, powerfully explaining a simple principle that would help get this church (and the rest of us) back on the right track.
