When someone writes about the bible, isn't it suppose to be either underlined or in italic since it is a book, going by grammer rules?

Keep It Simple. Just put it in quotations. If there are grammar rules saying otherwise, they're archaic. In the 21st century, the only time something should be underlined is if I can click on it.

I'm not talking about when someone quotes the bible, i mean when they say "the bible".

ex.

I read in The Bible that unicorns exist.

But it doesn't really matter anyway.

Yes, you can either italicize or underline titles of complete works that are published as separate items. I guess in the case of the bible you'd do so when writing The Holy Bible , but not when writing "the bible" because, like magazines, there are so many of them (but that part is only an assumption).
