The Bible in Fewer Words podcast

As many of you may know, my wife, Carole, and I have started a new podcast.

Well, it's not new anymore. In fact, we have released 54 episodes since we began a few months ago. We began with Genesis in December, and just posted the last episode of Leviticus today.

It was all Carole's idea, actually. Over the last few years I had been revising the SAB website by adding side notes to summarize the text of the Bible. And Carole was my editor.

She and I would discuss the notes, trying to make them a fair summary of the Bible's content, and while doing so, she recorded a few of our conversations. That's where the idea of a podcast came from.

Our goal is to present the Bible as concisely as possible, without leaving anything important out, while excluding the boring, repetitive, and uninteresting parts. So far it's been a lot of fun for us to produce,

So we invite you to listen to podcast episodes. They are usually between 10 and 15 minutes and cover from one to five or so chapters. You can find the text that we are reading here, with notes and links to the verses in the KJV at the SAB website. You are welcome to make comments and ask questions on the podcast pages. It'd be great to have you with us as we work our way through the Bible (using fewer words).
