    John. Revelation. I like a good Lewis Carroll-like trip every now and then.

    Pretty good stuff. Like any writer worth his salt, he borrowed from the best (viz. the remarkable resemblance of the rider on the pale horse to Kalki).

    Isaiah is another strong candidate: vatic thunder to rival an imbongi. The fact that, as Herman Charles Bosman noted, his "literary tricks are as patent as Shakespeare's" only adds to my conviction.

    I don't know about the style of Ecclesiates, but I like its tone.

    I don't recall anybody in The Bible doing hair.

    Since God is the author of the Bible I guess it's got to be him.

    I think he used a ghost writer. Or was that a holy ghost writer?

    Well, you know.

    2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    Definitely the author of Job (the oldest book in the whole Bible).
