Chorus director John Odom ranks the Bible at the top of his favorite books list.

“It’s kind of an instructional book on how to live each day and how to live your life better and treat people around you,” Odom said.

No one knows the exact date of when the Bible was first published. This is because it is one of the oldest pieces of literature.

“I started reading this book because my parents took me to church,” Odom said. “I was introduced to it at home and at church.”

The Bible is considered to be the most influential book ever published. It is the world’s best-selling book. The book has sold billions of copies and has been translated into numerous languages.

Odom explained the message of the book as being related to how people can make the world a better place.

“God has had such a positive impact in my life as I read the book and follow the tenets of the faith,” Odom said.

Odom recommends this book to other readers because it is an instruction book for life, and how we can better live our lives.
