The grouping of the Biblical Books with the Scripture is as follows: OT Law, OT History, OT Poetry, OT Prophecy, NT Gospels, NT Epistles.

 

I have also listed some recommended readings. Information on the recommendations may be viewed by clicking the title link.  I have also re-listed all the recommendations at the end of the article.
