  • Yes, it is... But you have to take in to account thefact that it's been in print and thus sales for quite some time. Unlike most books that are read for pleasure which you read and pass on, the bible is owned multiple times by many people and in different prints. Even I as a pagan have 2 different versions on my desk for reference. My mother has over 8 copies. So, it's sold the most because people see it differently than other books. It's not a book to most people, it's the Word Of God, that puts it in a different category all together. If I felt there was something sent to me from God, I would make damn sure that everyone I knew had a copy or 3... Same goes here.

  • It is also the most translated book ever - it's been translated into every major language, and almost every minor one - even into Klingon!! (DH and I are currently in the market for a copy of that, LOL)!
