    Book of the Living (i.e, Book of Life??), the Lamb’s book of life, Book of Remembrance, the Book of the wars of the Lord.

    These are some of the books mentioned in the Bible. I’m sure there are more.

    I think I understand... how many books are there in Heaven?

    I don't know much about this, however I believe that the "book of the wars of the Lord" was a reference to an earthly, man made actual document like the "book of the chronicals of the kings of Israel" or the "Acts of solomon": Non inspired contemporary records of Old Testament events which weren't preserved.

    I think the Book of the Living and the Book of Life are two different books.

    The Book of the Living is the one which Moses asks God to blot his name out of in Exodus 32:32.
    As I understand it, when we are born, our name is recorded and when we die, it is blotted out.

    The Book of Life is where believers names are recorded.

    There is the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings.
    What we probably call 1 and 2 Chronicles.

    I'm not sure though if you want to discuss the Books kept by God or the earthly ones mentioned in the Bible.

    Esther 10:2 mentions the book of the chronicles of the Kings of Media and Persia. Obviously not scripture, though.

    An e-search will turn up many books.

    How about the "Book of Works" where all our deeds were recorded; have you heard such?

    I can show you a verse.

    Josh 8:31 just as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded the sons of Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of uncut stones on which no man had wielded an iron tool; and they offered burnt offerings on it to the Lord, and sacrificed peace offerings.
    Josh 10:13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped,
    Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies.

    And in Your book were all written
    The days that were ordained for me],

    Thanks, Gb93433.

    But I'm talking about the books mentioned in the Bible which are kept in heaven.

    I don't think it's really clear on how many books are in Heaven, but I think it's quite a few.

    Tears are recorded in His book {Psalm 56:8}
    The hairs on our heads are numbered although this may not mean in a book.

    The Book{s} of Works I think is what is opened on the Day of Judgment.

    Other than this, I'm not sure it's very well revealed but if a detailed record of our tears and hairs is kept we would do well do guard all our actions carefully.

    "For we must all give an account."

    Brother Ruben, in searching the KJV, I find no books in heaven at all.

    And come to think of it, the great white throne judgment will not be in heaven.

    Exactly. Heaven and earth will have passed away, and the new heaven and earth will not have been brought forth.

    In Christ,

    Revelation says heaven and earth fled from before the throne. So, the throne could not have been in heaven!

    Another proof that the great white throne judgment is not in heaven is this: All those that were abominable, the fearful, the idolatrous, the murderers, etc., stand before the throne to be judged.

    The Bible teaches us nothing wicked can enter heaven, so the throne would have to be outside heaven.

    The devil himself was/will be/has been in heaven accusing the brethren...

    Revelation 12
    7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
    8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
    9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
    10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
    11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
    12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
