Condensing Christianity

AFP: Speedy but spiritual: British cleric unveils '100-Minute Bible'---

LONDON (AFP) - Business folk are used to reading executive summaries of important documents, and now would-be Christians are to have the same privilege, in the form of a chopped-down Bible that can be read in under two hours.

A Church of England vicar was on Wednesday unveiling his self-styled "100-Minute Bible", an ultra-condensed edition of the Christian holy book which claims to neatly summarise every teaching from the Creation to the Revelation.

The Reverend Michael Hinton was launching his work at Canterbury Cathedral in southern England, the headquarters of the Anglican Church.
I wonder what was left out? Probably everything condemning abortion, promiscuity, homosexuality, etc. All the things Liberals think are good.

Anyone serious about Christianity should be serious enough to read the Bible in full.
