There are narrative books like Genesis, 1 & 2 Kings, and the gospels; Law books like Leviticus & Deuteronomy; Poetry like the Psalms; Wisdom like Ecclesiastes & Proverbs, Epistles in the New Testament; and Apocalyptic books like Daniel and Revelation. As we begin this course, what is your favorite genre? Write a sentence or two explaining why.
