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.

The Pentateuch

Today marks the biggest Bible Summary milestone since I finished Genesis. I've summarised the whole Pentateuch!

It's taken six months, and they've been very significant months more generally, so it feels good to reach this point.

It's incredible how much my understanding of these books has grown through summarising. There's no glossing over paragraphs that I've only half-understood. I feel deeply involved in the story and themes.

And I'm still amazed at the level of interest in the project. The @biblesummary Twitter account had no followers when I published Genesis 1 (even I wasn't following at that point!). Five books later there were 17,565 followers for Deuteronomy 34.

To celebrate, and as a bit of an experiment, I'm publishing the Pentateuch summaries as a Kindle eBook over at Amazon. I think the Amazon entry is still updating, but at some point you will be able to find it (and buy it if you want to) by following one of these links: Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk.

So there we go! Up next: Joshua.
