100,000 copies of new Bible sold

100-Minute Bible

A compact version of the Bible has sold 100,000 copies since it was unveiled at Canterbury Cathedral last September.

The 100-Minute Bible was edited by the Reverend Michael Hinton, from Dover, in Kent, who said it could be read in less than two hours.

It has been launched in Australia and will be heading for the US and Canada.

Mr Hinton said its success was down to good publicity and the title. "The intention was to provide a gateway to the Bible as a whole," he explained.

Translations planned

The 100-Minute Bible was written as a page-turner for those who did not have the time to read the full version.

Originally, only 11,000 copies were printed, for distribution to churches and schools.

It took Mr Hinton more than two years to cut down the 66 books of the Bible into a version that could be read in 1hr 40min.

There are now plans to publish the Bible as far afield as China, Japan, South Korea and Iceland, once translations are complete.
