I thought this infographic might be of some interest to Logos users...at least a good reading project if nothing else.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Thank you, Doc.  

Interesting list. I suppose we shouldn't be surprised.  

Two are my top fav's (Joel and Jude) which 'book-end' the early Christians theologies. You could actually loose the Paulines, paste in Joel, and end up in modern Christianity today.

This list makes sense to me but makes we wonder what the bottom three are and which is the at the absolute bottom.

Using adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God

What is the criterion for "Least Popular"? Least read? Least favorite? I have doubts about this kind of "info" for a few reasons, one being validity and another being utility, among others.

I seriously doubt these are the least read. Many of these are very short books, and for that reason alone they are more likely to get "reading time" and attention than say 1 & 2 Chronicles. Anyway, I've already probably spent more time on this than it deserves.

According to the blog post, the bottom book is Obadiah.

I didn't fully read the post. Thanks for pointing that out.

I'm going to guess that a big part of the reason these are the least read is because they are also the least referred to in general. Obadiah in particular is a kind of isolated book, being as it is--on the surface--only about Edom and its punishment. That isn't a highly referenced subject. But it is also the shortest book in the Tanakh (just one chapter), so it ought to get some readership for that reason alone--and I'm quite sure it does, in paper Bibles. But online, where searching is a big element of the process, it doesn't translate as readily to "eyeballs" and "page views".

Haggai is on the list?  It  is a book which should be studied together with Ezra, Nehemiah and Zachariah.  Makes for a very interesting and profitable study!

I congratulate you for that. I taught for several weeks about this book and it was a great experience. It seemed that the book was written thinking about the Church of this century.
