BRITAIN: A devout Christian is gathering a flock of followers over Twitter, thanks to an ambitious plan to summarise the Bible in daily tweets.

Chris Juby, a Christian evangelist from Durham, plans to spend the next three years on the project.

"The challenge of being so brief will force me to engage with the text and understand the key themes," he said. "And that's partly the point in the first place."

His latest tweet sums up Genesis, chapter six: "Humankind corrupted the earth with evil. God decided to destroy them. He told Noah to build an ark to be saved from the flood."
