I see "Jesus", "Christ", "God", "Thinking", and "Know".

We can be certain it's not Joel Osteen's site that was Wordled.

MarieP said...

The word "certainty" also stuck out to me. That's very comforting!

And Frank too...proof that centuri0n is the REAL original Pyromaniac...

Tim Brown said...

Looks great!

I keep trying it out with my blog, but I keep getting "undefined" in the results window!

DJP said...

Must only do the current "home" page. Otherwise I'd expect big Spurgeon, Proverbs, schmeredactyls, etc.

wordsmith said...

I don't get it - what is "wordled"?

Phil Johnson said...

Wordle.

The Doulos said...

This is fun to play with. I just did one with the whole text of Romans 8 (NASB).

Johnny Dialectic said...

This jumped out at me:

"Many Thinking Jesus Christ to See and Know."

I like that.

Frank Turk said...

Wordle is an interesting view, and I suspect Phil dropped in the RSS link. I did a Wordle for 2007 and I got a differenty result which I converted to a t-shirt.

I also did some color correction to accept what is most important.

Have at it.

I wonder what would happen if I Wordled the entire Bible?

Would it say something pithy like "Jesus Christ, Messiah, covenant, creation, fall, redemption, new creation"?

Susan said...

Those "oojie-goojies" from Dan's "Uncle Jesus" thing two days ago are also there! (They are really tiny--off center right edge.)

You know, I was just thinkin': what if someone out there had different preachers' sermons Wordled? Wouldn't it be interesting to see which words are the biggest, since they indicate what each preacher emphasizes the most in his sermon?? (No, I don't mean Osteen or the like. I mean preachers such as MacArthur, Sproul, Piper, etc.)

wordsmith said...

Ah, I see - thanks, Phil. All the Google hits that I managed to pull up presupposed one was already familiar with the term.

Chris Rosebrough did something like this with two sermons by Bill Cwirla and two by Rick Warren. Find 'em here.

Also, be sure to check out Chris Rosebrough's Purpose Driven Heavenly Rewards Calculator. He says Micro$oft Excel is required, but it works fine in OpenOffice.org as well.

Thanks for stealing my T-Shirt idea, Frank. I'll wordle you . . .

(Just kidding)

Tyler said...

The ESV crew wordled the complete esv text and NewT a while back - pretty awesome.

Tyler said...

sorry, I guess it was some crazy Australian.

Susan asked if anyone had Wordled any sermons by well-known preachers. I got kinda curious too. I wanted to compare a sermon by Rick Warren to a sermon by John Piper. My stars it was hard to find a sermon from both that was on the same topic and same text. Warren almost never exposits texts and Piper exposits EVERYTHING. Warren charges $4 for just about everything and his stuff is not searchable. Piper's area all free and extremely searchable. Here's the best I could do, a pair of sermons on "becoming a mature Christian".

Rick Warren worlded

John Piper wordled

Enjoy!

Susan said...

Lucas, thanks for being as curious as I and actually taking the effort to do this comparison! However, for some odd reason I cannot see either image. I enabled the Wordle cookie, but that didn't help. I even tried searching under your image titles in the Wordle website, and it still said "no results". Anyone out there can suggest anything else? Thanks in advance and much appreciated.

This one is John MacArthur's exposition of 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Susan,

Go into your control panel and open up the Java console. Go to the advanced tab and make sure whichever browser you are using (IE, Mozilla, etc.) is checked as the default browser. Once I did that I was able to see the images.
