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.

In with the New

So here we are - 929 days in, over three-quarters of the way through the project, 128,137 characters published, and the whole of the Old Testament summarised!

It's a very satsfying feeling to have such a marathon behind me. The New Testament feels like a sprint finish by comparison.

I've published the complete Old Testament as a Kindle eBook for anyone interested:

Bible Summary: The Old Testament

The Old Testament

All 39 books of the Old Testament. Genesis to Malachi.

Kindle eBook. Buy from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk

The archive will always be here at the website.

And it's on to Matthew 1 tomorrow morning...

Summarising the New Testament seems like quite an engaging project in its own right. I'm more familiar with the content, but it's a very different kind of literature.

The Gospels have very long chapters so it's going to be a huge challenge deciding what to leave out. And then I've got to capture Paul's theology.

How am I going to fit Luke 15 or Romans 8 into 140 characters?

I guess we'll find out...
