Here's a quiz to test your biblical knowledge

This puzzle explains itself as you read through it.
A Vicar once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible (merely by fluke): it kept people looking so hard for the facts and for others it was a revelation; some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalised. But now the truth finally struck home to the 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 difficult ones to spot. Others will require judges to help them. We will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them. There will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little old lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are sixteen names of the Bible hidden in this paragraph. One preacher found fifteen books in twenty minutes - but it took three weeks to find the sixteenth one.

You can find the solution here, but don't be impatient!
