Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Since the order in which the books occur in the Scripture has not been defined via ecumenical council (at least, not that I know of), why not publish Scripture that begins with the New Testament and ends with the Old Testament -- since the Old can only be understood by the New?
When talking with folks who are not familiar with the Bible, I generally tell them to read the Gospels first as an introduction, and later to get into the Laws. After all, most peoples complaints about Christianity aren't even from the New Testament, they are disputes about the law, which as my signature quote suggests, "are without benefit and vain."
I will tell you the truth, there must be several BILLION Bibles out there in the world, and in many places people are upwards of 90% literate, and yet has the Bible changed the world in this regard? No. So I am all the more coming to understand the Bible is a tool best reserved for the context of the experts. I am increasingly starting to believe the Bible should come with a Spiritual Parental Advisory warning people not to read it with out the expert counsel of their spiritual fathers in the Church
