What are some beautiful/weird/useful parts of this old influential book?
I'm currently reading the genesis illustrated by Robert Crumb and highly recommend it.

my diary to be honest

I went to a christian elementary school. In class, we had to read some parts of the book together. given the fact that i was about 6-11 years old at the time i can't really say what is worth reading in the litterary/moral sense.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the books of David and Samson, pure for the storyline. its nice, like reading a novel if you have a modern version of the bible. The book of Caïn and Abel is a classic brother story in which, if you have a brother, you can definitly identify yourself (though the ending is a little bit extreme to say the least, no spoilers). The new testament is a bit overdone by Hollywood so it might be nice to re-read it, see where the story originates from. And the book from the new testament where Petre continues his journey is really good too.

Can't really think of anything else now. Hope this helped mate. Good luck!

Ecclesiastes is pretty well regarded, I've heard.
>>
For literary value the absolute essential books are:

Genesis
Exodus
Job
Psalms
Proverbs
Ecclesiastes
Song of Songs
Ezekiel
Jonah
Gospels
Acts
Revelation

Kings and Samuel are cool as well but drags on a bit.
