The number of books in the Bible varies depending on whether you're referring to the Old Testament or the New Testament and which religious tradition you're considering. 

In the Protestant Bible, there are 66 books in total:

- 39 books in the Old Testament

- 27 books in the New Testament

In the Catholic Bible and Orthodox Christian Bibles, there are additional books included in the Old Testament, known as the deuterocanonical books or Apocrypha, bringing the total to 73 books:

- 46 books in the Old Testament (including the deuterocanonical books)

- 27 books in the New Testament

The books are arranged differently in various Christian traditions, but the content remains largely the same.
