Very useful - thank you and may God bless your effort. With love.


Your summary's of the bible are GRAET but I think you should make them a little longer. I mean, I know you probably think its cool that you did them in 140 characters or less but it doesn't give a lot of detail and everything's not mentioned in them.


Its great but should be little longer


This summary is too short, and you leave out most of the important details.


Hi everyone above - yes, I had to miss out a lot to keep the summaries short enough to post on Twitter. This project is more useful as a zoomed-out overview than for all the details. There are other good resources to get the details.


How similar:
Gen 27. Jacob gets the blessing of the firstborn Esau.
Gen 48. Ephraim gets the blessing of the firstborn Manasseh.

What do you make of this chapter? What do you think of my summary? How would you summarise it?

I summarised all 1,189 chapters of the Bible on Twitter - one tweet per chapter, one chapter per day for over three years.

These are the summaries of the book of Genesis.

They are written to help you understand and remember what's going on in the chapter, but they're no substitute for reading the Bible for yourself.

Find out about the project here, you can buy the Bible Summary book on Kindle or in paperback, and feel free to get in contact if you have any comments or questions.
