Designed with the 21st Century reader in mind, each Little Bird Bible book is a short paraphrase translation that applies:
to simplify and enhance the Bible reading experience.
This Retweeted version of Philippians, formatted like a social media page, inserts a number of side conversations parallel to the original text froma theologically diverse cast of historic philosophers and thinkerswho debate and discuss the meaning and significance of key passages. Further, the Retweeted version is seasoned with a series of built in reflection questions and hashtag prompts, to best bring the discussion and interpretation of the sacred text into an ongoing open online dynamic discussion. Readers who would like a more straight-forward reading of the book without these inline living footnotes should check out the Abridged versionof this book.
Of all the letters the Apostle Paul wrote, Philippians is the most personal and the most joyous. From start to finish joy fills each page, even though the author is in prisonawaiting trial at the time he wrote it.
