There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them?
This is a 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 Johnboat.
Another studied it while playing the banjo.
Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it mentioned it in her weekly column.
Another friend judges the job of solving the 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 book names are not necessarily capitalized.
Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister or scholar
to see some 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 event, which featured this puzzle,
the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new sales 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 Hummana humbly puts it, "the books are all right there in plain 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 numbers.
Also, keep in mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal.
A really 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.

But before you do, use this slightly corrected puzzle...his mistakes are in bold.

At the bookshop, we have crossword puzzle books (and other puzzles) , and there was one Bible crossword puzzle book

Thankfully someone bought it, I wish I had if had the money, cos it would have been good to do in quarantine
