Chris Juby

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.

High Days and Holidays

250 chapters in and Bible Summary is very much part of normal life in the Juby household. The summaries take about 15-30 mins first thing each morning and are published with very little fanfare these days.

The routine continues even on special occasions. I've now published summaries on Christmas Day, New Year's Day, my wedding anniversary, my wife's birthday and my own birthday.

My wife and I have been on holiday recently, staying in various locations in France and Spain. (Yes, I'm showing off!)

Before we left I thought it was going to be a challenge posting summaries each day overseas, but it was almost disappointingly straightforward. I had a wifi connection almost every day and the data roaming charges for my phone were surprisingly reasonable.

The whole experience made me reflect on how inconceivable this project would have been only a few years ago. Both the technology and the medium are utterly 21st Century.

Anyway...

Tomorrow is a significant day for Bible Summary. David is about to make his first appearance!
