Every chapter of the Bible in 140 characters or less.

I summarised the Bible on Twitter between Aug 2010 and Nov 2013 - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day.

The @biblesummary account peaked at over 30,000 followers, and was featured in the news all over the world.

Twible (and other interesting projects)

When I had the idea for Bible Summary I looked around and was amazed that no one seemed to have thought of it before! I discovered a few days ago that someone had thought of it before.

Jana Riess summarises a chapter a day in a much sassier style on her Twitter account as the Twible. She's just finishing 1 Kings.

I got in touch with Jana to express my slight embarrassment. She was very gracious and has even posted an article recommending Bible Summary (and a couple of other interesting projects) at her Beliefnet.com blog 'Flunking Sainthood'.

Many thanks to Jana, and I warmly recommend a visit to Twible!

P.S. On the subject of related projects... I've been wanting to point your attention to @summatheologiae, who is summarising Thomas Aquinas' 'Summa Theologica' on Twitter, proposition by proposition - a truly extreme undertaking!
