Citing reports by the Huffington Post and The Guardian, the anonymous creator of the innovative Emoji Bible, with the subtitle “Scripture 4 Millennials” used translation engine Lingo Jam to automatically and easefully translate all 66 books of the Bible. Also, an ‘in-translator’ website and a Twitter account were created to effectively spread the good news to online platforms.

“I’d tweet out the rough draft, get feedback from the Twitter community, then revise my program, ” the creator explained in an interview with Huffington Post.  It took him six months to incessantly substitute 80 emojis with 200 words from the Bible.

The e-book consists of 3,300 pages and is currently sold on iBooks in the United States for $2.99 (PhP 140). Gianna Francesca Catolico
