Word clouds are cool things.  Essentially, it’s all of the major words of any given section of text or writing, book or poem.  However in a word cloud, those words that appear more often in the selected text are larger than words that occur less often.  It’s a cool way to quickly pick out major themes or ideas in something that someone has written – whether intentional or unintentional.

Somebody has created word clouds for each of the sixty-six books of the Bible

Better yet, you can get a free pdf of these images! 

Parameters for these word clouds include a limit of 150 words – so only the 150 most frequently occurring words in the text appear in the word cloud.  Also, numbers and more common words (the, and, etc.) were filtered out.  The exact same criteria was used for each book of the Bible.

I think that these are both beautiful and informative – what a cool thing to have framed, or to use on the cover of Sunday worship bulletins!
