Reaching Young People with a Text Message Bible

Friday, March 13th, 2009

In a post entitled “Retreat!” Christian blogger Tim Challies decries the ubiquity of cell phones and texting among Christian youth, rightly noting that they can’t stand going a few minutes without talking or (nowadays) texting. The martial art of Judo teaches us to use an opponent’s own weight and momentum against him, and a small group at the Willow Bend Community Church of Lutz, Florida has figured out one way to do just that by translating the entire Bible into mobile message text. A confession here: it was my wife’s idea, she discovered a way to do it as well, and I actually did it. We have created a site to sell d Old Textament and d New Textament at Textament.com. A Mobipocket version will follow soon.
