The Bible For Busy People

Saw 'the complete word of God, abridged' by the Reduced Shakespeare Company last week at the start of their national tour. Good fun, though a bit close to the bone in one or two parts. Interesting that a lot of the programme notes related to censorship and the blasphemy law.

Then, in one of those coincidences which happen when you don't pray, I came across this, which is possibly even more abridged:

HT LaVrai, who laments how we try to cram everything into shorter and shorter chunks of time. There are 'one minute Bible's which try to condense scripture, reflection and prayer into... you got there before me. Were you skim reading there?
