Is there a Hindu Bible?

I was surprised to find that ‘Hindu Bible’ is one of the popular searches in search engines on topic related to Hinduism. I guess by bible the searchers meant the holy book of Hinduism. Hindu religion has numerous Holy Scriptures like the Vedas, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, the Puranas, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

But which Holy Scripture will qualify as the Bible of Hinduism? Now, the choice would vary from people to people. For me it is the Bhagavad Gita because it contains the essence of all the important Hindu Scriptures.
