  1. Big challenge

    Can you find thirty (30) books of the Bible in this paragraph? Actually, there are 31 if you can find the variant of one Old Testament prophet's name.

    There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them? This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket, on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much, he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That's a fact. Some people, however, will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or a scholar to see some of them at the worst. Research has shown that something in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new record. The local paper, The Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficult they had ever seen. As Daniel Humana humbly puts it, "The books are all right here in plain view hidden from sight." Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also, keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus; there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking somewhere in this paragraph waiting to be found. God Bless.
  2. I'm working on it. I've got 22 right now. 8)
  3. I found all except the variant of the old testament prophet name.

    Would you like me to post and ruin the fun for everyone else? 8)
  4. Please don't post the answer, Solo! Some of us have about 5 more plus the extra to find! 8)
  5. I am keeping it a big secret. :-D
  6. I've found 27 now! 8) I'll have to work on it some more tonight after work.
  7. Well I've got all 30,but it took me longer than it needed to because I copied the 3rd sentence wrong .
    I spent like 3 hours looking and rechecking for the 30th one and finally my husband realized my mistake.
    How like me to copy one little sentence wrong,...
    anyway I am still looking for # 31.
  8. I guess I'm just not real good at this because I just started looking again and I'm still only on 27. :?
