Sentiment Analysis of the Bible

via Andrew Sullivan:

Pretty cool look at the Bible. They also have a book by book analysis. This is Proverbs:

The Good Book was charted using “sentiment analysis,” which marks when positive and negative events occurred:

Things start off well with creation, turn negative with Job and the patriarchs, improve again with Moses, dip with the period of the judges, recover with David, and have a mixed record (especially negative when Samaria is around) during the monarchy. … In the New Testament, things start off fine with Jesus, then quickly turn negative as opposition to his message grows. The story of the early church, especially in the epistles, is largely positive.
