The 100-Minute Bible

I’m not sure how I feel about this Bible. Have any of you read it?  What do you think of it?  Do you recommend it?

I was leery of The Living Bible so I’m really leery of a book that condenses the Bible to a 100-minute read.

If you haven’t heard of this Bible, you can read about it HERE.

After thinking about it, I think my problem is that the book is referred to as a Bible.  I’d probably be more open to it if it had another title.  Unfortunately, I can’t think of one.

What do you think?

  1. I can see value for new Christians, particularly people who were previously “unchurched” but I’m with you. A different title, something like, “Christianity Condensed” might have been better. Because the website says, “The 100-Minute Bible picks out the principal stories of the life and ministry of its central character, Jesus Christ.”

    When you start picking and choosing, even with good intent, it’s not the Bible anymore.

  2. There are so many bibles that break The Bible down into plain English these days I don’t know why someone just couldn’t pick one of those without the “fast food” title (rolling my eyes upward).
