Blogging the Bible

A friend sent me this link, about a guy who doesn’t really know the Bible, and is going to read through the entire thing, and blog about the experience. His angle is that blogging it will capture the thoughts of someone who is reading it for the first time.

I thought about stealing his idea, and doing the same thing. The problem is that:

  1. I know the Bible better than he does, so it wouldn’t be a chronicle of a first-timer’s reading
  2. On the other hand, I don’t know enough to write a proper Biblical commentary, so the blog wouldn’t have any value in that respect, either.
So I know too much—but not enough—to offer any value in writing it.

It’s still an intriguing idea, though…
