|Axe of the Apostles|
Reading the New Testament, I was similarly thinking the same thing after reading the four books of gospels at the beginning. Jesus' birth, death, resurrection? All in the first four books. (Actually, all in the first book, but repeated in the next three as well.) What's left?
Turns out, still a few classic stories. In Acts of the Apostles, for instance, I was taken back to my high school religion classes, learning about the conversion of Saul into Slash, er, I mean, Paul. I enjoyed this tale then as I did now, with its message of righteous guitar solos and redemption.
Acts is basically the Traveling Christian Road Show, with Peter, Paul and other apostles bringing the story of Jesus, and their interpretation of his teachings, to Mediterranean Europe. Along the way they are forced to defend their beliefs, sometimes as a matter of life and death. Like when I went to France and insisted on getting a large coffee-to-go when everyone insisted that I sit and relax with an espresso.
