Tweeting the Bible

First the Passion and now the Bible: German Christians are starting what they hope will be a record-breaking effort to use the new Internet social-networking and micro-blogging service Twitter to try and “tweet” the Bible according to Ecumenical News International (ENI).

“We want with this action to encourage a debate about the Bible and to simultaneously show the modern possibilities that exist to receive and make known the Word of God,” said Melanie Huber, portal manager of the Protestant Web site, which launched the initiative.


The project aims to publish the Bible in a shortened, micro-blog form on 24 May, the final day of the once-every-two years German Protestant Convention known as the Kirchentag, which attracts tens of thousands of participants as well as political leaders from Germany and beyond.
