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.
Now available in Paperback and on Kindle
For release from 8 November 2013
Bible Tweeter Chris Juby has completed his three-and-a-half year marathon summarising the Bible on Twitter.
Every day since August 2010, Juby – who is director of worship at King’s Church in Durham, UK – has condensed a chapter of Scripture into a single tweet of no more than 140 characters. The project has attracted attention from around the world, and he posted his final summary on November 8 to over 29,000 followers.
"It's amazing to complete the journey," said Juby. "So much has happened in the last three years. My own story now feels very bound up with the story of the Scripture."
As well as posting on birthdays, anniversaries, and from a holiday abroad, Juby even managed to find time to tweet from the delivery ward. Twice. "I've gained two sons over the course of the project," he said, "so my wife Hannah definitely deserves her share of the credit for the fact that I haven't missed a day."
Juby now plans to take a break from summarising, but he's not finished with the Bible. "Reading Scripture is much more than just a project for me. It's about knowing God," he said. "I'll still read a chapter a day. Maybe I’ll go back to the New Testament next."
Although there will be no more updates to the @biblesummary Twitter account, several publishers have shown interest in producing a Bible Summary book, and Juby hopes to use the finished summary in partnership with other creative projects.
