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.

Letters

I've finished the Gospels and Acts!

Romans comes next - one of the books that I've been most apprehensive about taking on. (Genesis, Proverbs, Luke and Revelation are the others, if you're interested.)

For a start there's the brilliance and complexity of Paul's thought in this letter. That's enough of a challenge, to be honest! But Romans is also regarded by many as the heart of Christian doctrine. A lot of people have a lot of opinions about this letter.

Summarising always means leaving out important material, but no one notices what gets missed from, say, Jeremiah 22 or Ezekiel 46. I have a sneaking suspicion that that won't be the case when it comes to Romans.

As always, I'll be trying to be as true to the chapters as possible. But I guess I'll discover some of my own bias in what I end up emphasising and what I miss out.

An interesting couple of weeks ahead...
