Bible Emoji: Scripture 4 Millennials

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.In this case—a familiar emoji smiling face with a halo!

“Bible Emoji: Scripture 4 Millennials” was released
last week through Apple iBooks—with the Bible translated using 80 emoji icons throughout the books of the New and Old Testament. . . .and with 15% fewer words, and the use of emojis and popular contractions, the KJV text is intact.

The translator, whose signature is the familiar “Smiling Face with Sunglasses," says: “The Bible more than any other book has a rich history of translation," and in this case,the Bible Emoji makes sharing a Bible verse with friends fun and interesting!”

For millennials its icons are familiar territory! But as might be expected, engaging with the Bible Emoji is resulting in both positive and negative reactions!

Not unlike the history of the Bible itself!
