One is given in bold to illustrate.

There are 30 books of the Bible in this paragraph. Can you find them? This is a most remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman in an airplane seat pocket. This was on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, kept him occupied for hours! He enjoyed it so much he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his john boat. Another friend studied it in between playing on his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend was so intrigued by it she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involving, she brews a cup of tea to help calm her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That's a fact. Some people however, will soon find themselves in a jam, especially since the book names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, though, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a scholar to see them at the worst and most difficult parts. Research has shown that perhaps some one thing in our genes is responsible for the difficulty we have in seeing the book in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a news sales record. The local paper, the Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficult they had ever seen. As Daniel Gorazna humbly puts it, the books are all right there in plain view hidden from sight. Those able to find all of them will hear lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that books like Timothy and Samuel may occur without their "numbers." Also keep in mind that punctuation and spacers in the middle are normal. A chipper (no golfing) attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember there is no need for a mad exodus, there really are 30 books of the bible lurking somewhere in the paragraph waiting to be found. In conclusion, one extra "book" of the bible has been included in a subtle unexpected way, and it may be a matter of life and death if you cannot find yourself inside this particular book yourself....
