I would say The Canticles. Here is an Old Testament book full of Christ, and his relationship with his people.

I suppose that some might avoid it because of the mysticism and spiritualising, but surely Christianity by definition is mysticism in its purest form. That is, we are indwelt by a Spirit, the invisible Spirit of Christ. It is this Spirit which reveals all we know about God and Christ, firstly by direct revelation, without which we would never desire to flee from the wrath to come, nor desire Christ to be Lord over us, nor trust in Christ as our Saviour. And secondly, through our study of God's word, through which he reveals objective truth necessary for true doctrine, and subjective intimate conversation (A.V. definition) with Christ himself.

The Song adequately shows how fellowship with God (which is the whole purpose of Christianity) can be marred or even lost for a while. But because of the continually indwelling Spirit, and the matchless grace of God, no believer can be happy, in the true spiritual sense, until a renewal of fellowship is brought about.

It is interesting in the Song, that those in such a predicament find it hard to get good advice from those who should be their shepherds, on how to find again their lost beloved.

The answer is James. regardless of Mr. Luthers view. The job of a christian is to do the work of Christ not to focus on his salvation.

Most of the OT is ignored in these Dispensational days, apart from relevant prophecies (most of which have already been fulfilled). Because we now sing insipid subjective songs in church we no longer know the Psalms. Because we are becoming more and more antinomian, we no longer study the law of God. So many like to call themselves "NT Christians", not even knowing how inane that statement is. But this is the price for refusing to see the Bible as covenantally structured because of Dispy double vision.

From my observation it depends on your ministry team. Some folk preach mainly OT while others concentrate on the letters or the gospels. At the moment we're sitting under a very balanced ministry that spends time in the OT and in the NT often showing how they fit together. We've recently had a series on ecclesiastes and are now in Matthew's gospel.

Ah, I see. Thank you! By the way, have you ever seen the Baptist Confession? It is very short. In Phillip Schaff's three volumes on the confessions, the Baptists rate 1 page. This is because it is identical with the WCF, except for two points - being Baptism (obviously, or else the whole denomination ceases to exist) and Church Government.

Yes - or say that Romans 9 has nothing to do with election of NT believers, but with choosing of a whole nation. It does mean a lot of Scripture has to be ignored or explained away. But tell me, and please excuse my ignorance, what is the IFB?

I think we have lost a lot of understanding of the whole OT. We no longer sing the Psalms, and prophecy is being misused more and more to bolster Dispy double vision. Even Revelation, which parallels Ezekiel is misreprented to the point of distortion because no one sees the Bible covenantally anymore. Revelation is given as a covenantal document in the style of a covenantal document. Even the seven churches, which clearly parallel the Old Testament church, are misused and misquoted. So it is not so much of a concern as to what Book is neglected, but how are they used? I personally know next to nothing of the Song of Solomon. I derive nothing from it, and it is nowhere quoted in the NT. Sometimes I wonder why it is in the canon. But that is my own personal view, so please don't shoot me down over it.

Gotta be the Minor Prophets. I have only heard one good thorough exposition of the Minor Prophets and that was done by J. Vernon McGee. I've read great commentaries, but haven't heard much expository preaching on it

Probably Jeremiah.

Especially places like chapter 51, verses
20 to the end of the chapter.

NOT exactly what you might expect to see on
one of those fluffy daily-Bible-verse calendars
sold in most Bible bookstores that try to show
what a "loving God" God is.

We must read and listen to the WHOLE Bible.
Even the parts that sound unpleasant to us
if we are ever to know God for who He truely
is in ALL His aspects.

The first six verses indeed!

Now here's a thought ...
IF the number of sermons available per Book on Sermonaudio.com is any indication as to what Book(s) of the Bible are the most neglected, we find that:
NAHUM has 108 sermons
3 JOHN has 97 sermons
OBADIAH has 71 sermons

It's by no means definitive, but it might be illustrative.

[URL=http://reluctant-messenger.com/1enoch01-60.htm]]]http://reluctant-messenger.com/1enoch01-60.htm[/URL] I came to real faith whilst reading Galatians-no idea why i had never heard it before (o you foolish galatians who has betwitched you...).
Deuteronomy-this is a nuclear bomb of a book and makes the traditional view of God as a nice fluffy old man on a cloud seam a bit ridiculous.
Also neglected is 1 Enoch (which is referenced in both Jude and 1 Peter), but excluded from canon. Amazing Messianic prophecy, read it and get a Jew to read it...Phenomenal.

I think it's Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 2 Timothy, and Philemon.

Of course, those aren't listed as options, so, it would seem that what I think doesn't really matter.

It's got to be ***No answer*** as *Bel and the Dragon* wasn't included among the choices.

Another extremely neglected Book of the Bible would have to be *Tobit*. I have no idea why it goes unappreciated as the story of someone blinded by bird droppings that fell in his eyes is tremendously inspiring!
