When browsing the non-fiction section, linked from

Without getting into big theological debates, we agreed some time ago that the Bible should be categorized as non-fiction, as is done at the Library of Congress & Project Gutenberg.

The LOC classification is: "Philosophy, Psychology, Religion: Christianity"

Hi brad2thebone,

The Bible, the Koran, the Dhammapada and other "Scriptures" are entered as non fiction on purpose.

So far I am only a listener and am new to LibriVox, so thank you for the clarification.
