Defeated by one hidden book

At cell last week the ice breaker was to find 17 books of the Bible hidden in the passage below. I only found 14 in the allotted 10 minutes. 4 days later and I have now found 16 but can’t find the last one. It is really starting to annoy me ... so please help!!!

I once made a remark about the hidden books in the Bible. It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for the facts, and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books are not capitalised, but the truth really struck home to numbers of readers. To others it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of the 17, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now, for there really are the names of 17 books of the Bible in these sentences. (One preacher found 16 books in 20 minutes. It took him three weeks to find the seventeenth one.)

Got to 16 and googled. The 17th is a bit of a cheat.
