Step 1 : Introduction to the question "1. What religious text is often simply called the "Good Book"? "
...1. Bardo Thodol 2. Christian Bible 3. Dianetics 4. Bhagavad Gita There is no definitive etymology for the naming of the Christian Bible as the "Good Book". The phrase has been around since at least the 19th Century as it is found in literature for that period. One theory is that the "good book" is a follow on from the similar colloquialism for the Christian bible of "Good News". "Good News" has a more defined etymology coming from the Greek euang�lion ("good" + "messenger"). The Greek term was Latinized as "evangelium" and then into Old English as g�dspel or gospel (g�d "good" + spel "news"). The Bhagavad Gita is a Hindu scripture that is part of the ancient epic called the "Mahabharata". "Dianetics" is a modern book written by L. Ron Hubbard that forms the basis for Scientology, while the Bardo Thodol is a funerary text more commonly known as the "Tibetan Book of the Dead".
