Author Releases New BIBLE Version For Millennials, And You Might Not Even RECOGNIZE It

In an attempt to reach a Millennial generation that he sees as uninterested in reading the Bible, an author has written a translation dumbed down to one of the lowest levels of the English language: text-speak and emojis.

Yes, you read that correctly.

According to Christian Today, the author, identified as The Memo, said "A major goal of this whole process was to take a book that I think is very non-approachable to lay readers and try to make it more approachable by removing a lot of its density."

Throughout the emoji Bible, words like "and," "without," and "b" are translated to "&," "w/o," and "b." Many other words are replaced by emojis or emoticons — cartoonish symbols prevalent in text messages and social media posts — such as a light bulb icon representing "light" and a smiley face with a halo oddly representing "God."

See an example from Genesis 1 below:

The author explained that "There's a lot of trial and error, and a lot of rereading. But it's all worth the goal of making the Bible a little more approachable, to inject some levity, and to get people to look at it, with no particular agenda beyond that."
