Bible Brain Twister (solution)

One of our subscribers has inquired regarding the Bible Brain Twister in the August issue of BulletinGold. It is not so diffucult to discover 16, but the 17th seems to be more camouflaged. So I searched online to find the following solution ...

Bible Brain Twister (solution)

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 ajam, especially since the names of the books are not capitalized, but the truthfinally 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 the 17, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little 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 the names of 17 books of the Bible in these sentences. One preacher found 16 books in 20 minutes. It took him three weeks to find the seventeenth one.

The elusive 17th book is the word "preacher," which is technically the English translation of the the Hebrew title of the book Ecclesiastes.

I am interested in any insight other subscribers may have regarding the puzzle and possible solutions.
