Reader's Diary #928- The New King James Version Bible: Obadiah

I was just starting to formulate an idea about the message of the Book of Obadiah (we should learn from history, let grudges go, etc) when boom, the Book of Obadiah ended. One chapter. Shortest book in the Bible. (Tucking that away for my Jeopardy appearance.)

I know I shouldn't be happy about its length. People who decide to read the Bible cover to cover aren't supposed to treat each book like notches on a belt, but I'm willing to bet that most of them who claim not to take relief from such short books are lying. With Obadiah out of the way, I've only 8 more to go to finish the Old Testament. I can do this.

Brevity (and relief at same) are underrated. Especially when it comes to the bible.
