The #Bible in Wordle format (@drbexl)

Reading Holly’s blog post earlier today, and as a visual historian who enjoys the odd wander around Pinterest (and collecting Bible verses on there) I decided to do what I’d been thinking about for a while … use Tumblr to post something Biblical daily … as we’ve started with Genesis – let’s turn each chapter into a Wordle:

There seems to be a bit of encouragement for this already, although as @SimonADouglas pointed out – chapter divisions are arbitrary – and of course – each translation would produce a different result – but I’ve found it interesting to see the core themes (Tumblr allows you to ‘queue’ content, so 10 days are already set up).

So, a quick Google, and we discover that there are 1189 chapters in the Bible – so this is 3+ years work…
