Mixing Religion & Politics

In his recent attempts at mixing religion & politics, Howard Dean mistakenly attributed the Book of Job to the New Testatament. Anybody can make a mistake, but you would think a man like Dean would know his Bible basics.

In any case, here is my first contribution to the Dean Campaign - a list of the 24 Books of the Hebrew Bible:

The Five Books of Moses
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy

The Eight Books of the Prophets
Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekial, The Twelve Minor Prophets

The Eleven Books of the Writings (Kesuvim)
Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, Esther, Daniel, Ezra/Nehemia, Chronicles
