Which Book of the Bible should a new Christian read first?
But any of the four gospels would be a great beginning point for a new Christian because they focus on the centrality of Jesus Christ which the entire Bible actually points toward since He is the sole means of redemption and salvation.

Is Genesis a good book to start with?
Genesis is a nice follow up if the new Christian is looking for something to understand the origins of the universe and the over arching plan of God and His dealings with man. Thanks for letting me add my two cents worth. May God bless you in all your work. Reply NomsaJanuary 13, 2016 at 3:12 am

Where should I start reading the Bible?
When believers and non-believers ask me where to begin to read the Bible, my recommendation is my own personal preference. Others may give you other books to start with in reading the Bible. I would recommend that they do not start in the book of Revelation or in Genesis and start reading it through from start to finish. For a seasoned Christian, reading through the Bible is an excellent learning tool but for a new believer, it can be cumbersome and confusing. Revelation is difficult to understand, so for a beginner to start out in that book is asking for confusion and mistranslation of the verses since much of it is written in symbolic language. Here is a preferred order for a new believer or a non-Christian who wants to start to read and understand the Bible:
