A Christian evangelist has launched an almighty work of precis, to reduce the 800,000-odd words in the Bible to 1,190 tweets.
Chris Juby, a 30-year-old freelance web developer and director of worship at King’s church in Durham, says it will take more than two years to reach chapter 22 of the Book of Revelation, with its forecast of the second coming of Christ.
He started last Sunday by condensing the 31 verses of Genesis chapter one, which traditionally starts with the appropriately pithy: “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” Juby supplemented this with a further 17 words in his opening tweet, staying comfortably within Twitter’s 140-character limit.
