    1. Hmmm. I just added my own book, _The Twible_, to the database and now it is asking me to also rate the book. This seems oddly pompous but here goes . . . I really like this book I wrote.This project began in 2009 on Twitter and has grown from there, and I'm thrilled to see it grow up and become a book. If you enjoy religious humor with an irreverent bent, I hope you'll like it too. There are 1,189 tweets, one for each chapter of the Bible. There are over 50 cartoons from the talented Leighton C [...]


    2. Do you know what a tweet is? Do you have a sense of humor? Do you have an interest in the Bible? If you match up with these three criteria, I may have a book for you. The Twible is the self-published project of Jana Riess, who has published -- with great graphics and informative side bars -- her ongoing project to summarize chapters of the Bible in no more than 140 characters (all that Twitter allows. I add that you have to have a sense of humor because Jana places a humorous, even snarky spin o [...]


    3. The Twible is a grand experiment of sorts. Over a period of more than three years, Jana Riess read the entire Bible and reduced every one of its chapters to a 140 word Twitter post. There was no doubt that this was going to be funny, but there are several kinds of funny that it could have been. It could very easily have descended into a kind of burlesque mockery where the strangeness and incomprehensibility of much of the text became the joke. But the Twible is much better than that.Reducing thi [...]


    4. I have been a facebook follower of Jana Riess since reading her book "Flunking Sainthood," and have been avidly following her Biblical tweets through that page. When it was offered up in book form, I pounced!One doesn't necessarily jump to the words "humor" and "laughter" when thinking of the Bible in any formbut what a shame we don't! This entire book had me chuckling at every turn. I have my favorite "chapters" in this one, but pretty much every one had fun and hilarity in it.By a well-thought [...]


    5. Have been reading this book over the author's Facebook status updates for the last year plus. Very enjoyable and creative. I think those new to the Bible and those familiar with it both will love it. It's a new, very modern way of reading and looking at the Bible. It's interesting how the Twitter format brings a new understanding to the Bible.


    6. Won a signed copy of this self-published book from Jana Riess through , and I can't wait to get started! Just from reading the front and inside covers, I can tell it's going to be fun. Love the concept!It took me a little while, but I finished yesterday. Ms. Riess is clearly someone who's not only read & studied the bible, but was also able create a delicious reduction of each chapter, infused with her own sarcasm, that any one of us can enjoy. Not a small feat!For example, Psalm 88 (which s [...]


    7. Jana Riess knocks it out of the park with this frequently hilarious recap of the Bible, chapter for chapter, in Twitter-length snippets. She makes a bright line decision against any sarcasm related to the atonement, but beyond that, all is fair game, and rightly so. Well done, Jana! I will read this again and again, and given the length, I can (unlike the Bible).


    8. Loved it. Although the Twible is intended to help people want to read the real thing, since most people haven't, I think I liked it even more because I have read the real thing. I am encouraging my kids to read the Twible, I think they will love it, too.


    9. Outrageously great fun from a remarkable religion writer. Displays great respect for the power of the Bible through a kind of gently dissembling humor that takes the book very seriously. I think the book will have appeal for experts in the Bible as well as novices.



    10. I definitely have to get a copy of this book for myself. Very humorous, and the use of Twitter might help those who shy away from the Bible to become more interested in reading it. I know that I am really motivated now to start reading the Bible as a whole again.Full review to come.++++++++++Review is posted!

    11. I received this book for free in exchange for my honest views through the First Reads program.This book is fun and unique. I loved the idea of it from the outset. What if someone tweeted the entire Bible? Well, they did. And then they published all the tweets in a book.Of course, it's not just a straight summary. It is sarcastic and funny. The author says in the introduction that she would ask herself, "What would the Onion say about this chapter?"The result is quite enjoyable. But I do have to [...]


    12. I really enjoyed this book. I've read The Bible several times and studied it from different angles, so I didn't expect to learn anything new, and I was pleasantly surprised that I did indeed learn while reading. I was already aware of most of the interesting, funny, awkward details that Jana brought up in The Twible, but her take was always fresh, interesting and amusing.This book isn't for everybody. A complete non-believer would probably not be too interested in Jana's insights, and an absolut [...]


    13. Jana Reiss sets her parameters (each chapter of the Bible gets a 140 character tweet) and within those parameters has done something pretty impressive. While some of the humor could be forced or lazy (e.g. boilerplate verse on helping the poor: "Ya hear that TEA PARTY!? FOX NEWS!?") the majority of the book is clever, thoughtful, and honest. A very enjoyable read.


    14. Funny and insightful, the tweet format makes you zip through the Bible while better understanding how it's put together, when the books were written, and who the various authors are (or are purported to be). Awesome project that makes me want to get into the Bible to see how the tweets really match the chapters.


    15. A delightful, quirky book that has me actually yearning to go read the bible in full form. I'm glad I bought it, too, because I will probably be pulling it out to read Jana's summaries alongside any biblical study. Very fun read.




    16. Every chapter of the Bible summarized in a tweet. There are so many ways this could have gone wrong, but it didn't. Entertaining and impressive
