About the Tweets of the Apostles in the NTV
Twitter has changed everything in our world: how we communicate, market, and network. Now, Twitter is changing how we read and understand the Bible. Until now, every translator of the Bible was bound to report every single detail in the original manuscripts.
With Twitter, we’ve found a fast, efficient, easily shared way of communicating that cuts out the repetition and cluttered details. By constraining the message of Acts into a series of tweets, readers will quickly grasp the complete message of the book of Acts and easily share the Gospel with their friends and neighbors who may not understand the Gospel if we build orphanages and provide clean water for the poor, but who may understand a simple, succinct tweet.
The New Twitter Version keeps the message of Acts simple, effective, and easy to share. By focusing on the minor details of the Acts story and cutting out the long, repetitious conversion narratives, this fresh translation reshapes the Bible into the image of today’s communication technology so that we can relate to the characters, understand the challenges they faced, and learn more about what they ate for lunch.
Is The Tweets of the Apostles a Real Book?
The NTV and The Tweets of the Apostles is a real book in that you can download and read a real E-book. However, this book is being released on April 1st. Take a moment to consider what usually happens on April 1st. Whoopee cushions… Staplers in jello… Threats to conduct small group over Skype… (Yes, my brilliant friend actually pulled that one off!)
Are you following me?
In fact, every year I release a book like this on April 1st.
All that to say, while I do spend a lot of time talking about what Christians do and believe and how our culture impacts both, you may not want to form your judgments of me based on the NTV. Coffeehouse Theology would be a much better place to start.
