I usually start at the front and work my way through -- but I admit I skip the "begats" and other booring shit. All those piddly little prophets at the end of the Old Testament don't do much for me, either, although there are some interesting bits. The best books are Genesis, Exodus, Job, Ezekiel, the Gospel of John, and of course, everyone's favorite, Revelation. I'm very fond of the books that got left out of the King James Bible. The Wisdom of Solomon is terrific. So is the Book of Enoch.

As a Catholic you might like the Knox version, although for pure poetry you can't beat King James. It's not as accurate as modern translations, but it's the word of God -- they aren't.
