Books of the Bible Game

For my son's 16th birthday, he had to complete sixteen different games or puzzles.  He was happy to do this, because he received an envelope after completing each task.  The first envelope had 16 pennies, the second one had 16 nickels, then 16 dimes, 16 quarters, 16 dollars, 16 fives, and then different combinations of money.  (No, we didn't give him sixteen $10's and $20's.)

This was one of his favorite games:

Can you find 16 books of the Bible in this paragraph?



I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible (merely by a fluke). It kept people looking so hard for the facts and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the name of the books were not capitalized, but the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now. There really are sixteen names of books in this story.
