    From Lupine Furmen@VERT/FURFOL to All on Mon Dec 2 11:10:25 2019
    The names of sixteen books of the English Bible are hidden in the text of the following paragraph. Can you find all sixteen of them?

    I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu. Kept people looking so hard for facts and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others, it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. One little lady says she brews a cup of tea, so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now for there are really sixteen names of books of the Bible in this story.

    I'll post the answers in a few days to give everyone a chance to find them.

    Took a while but got it :) For a time I thought maybe there was a bit of a twist trying to find the last one, but then, there it is.

    I won't post my results, don't want to mess it up for anyone else finding
    it interesting.

    yes they're all easily spotted but it would see to be an unfair test with some of the names split over more than one word and/or using only part of a word... it is a decent test as far as game tests go, though...
