The Twible delivers holy writ with Twitter wit

Nearly every home has at least one Bible, although few read it.

But 16 percent of Americans log on to Twitter every day. And that’s where author Jana Riess takes the word of God. A popular Mormon blogger at Religion News Service and author of Flunking Sainthood, Riess spent four years tweeting every book of the Old and New Testaments with pith and wit.

Now, the complete collection—each chapter condensed to 140 characters — is on sale as The Twible (rhymes with Bible), with cartoons and zippy summaries added for each biblical book.
