The Bible in Pictures

Or, if not strictly pictures, then amazingly detailed graphs. Catching up on the Tall Skinny Kiwi’s blog yesterday, I came across a link for a site called Visualizing the Bible. The creator of this, Chris Harrison, has extracted data from the Bible, such as cross references, and applied computing power to render these relationships visually.

The results are both fascinating and thought-provoking. For example, his chart of cross references comes out resembling a rainbow but also illustrates how interwoven the collection of books that make up the Christian scriptures are. Despite having been written over a long time period by diverse authors weaves together into a whole, densely knit unit.
