A world without Bibles?

That is an intriguing premise to a new book published by a West Michigan pastor. I have not read the book, nor do I know the author, but it does hit me where the Lord has been working on me. The premise is that all the Bibles disappear, and all we have of Christianity is what is in our heads. Which sounds scary.

I know the Lord has been pressing me on memorizing scripture. It is a discipline that I have neglected and need to return to. There may come a day when I can no longer read, and, and all I have of scripture is what is locked away in my slightly addled brain.

If any of you have any scripture memorization tips you would like to share, I'm all ears.

This is an interesting site with some scripture memorization helps.

I have been thinking about writing a book along those lines! Phooey! Oh well...

Anyway, I am a fellow pilgrim traveler and about a year ago (give or take a month or two) the Lord challenged me to memorize more of His word. I started with Jude and have since memorized Colossians, 1 Peter (with my wife) and 1 Thessalonians (with my wife). We are now working on Ephesians, though that is going a little slower due to our newborn!

I am currently having a book self-published about memorization. Shoot me your e-mail address, and when it is back from the publisher I will send you a copy.

Thanks for the tip. Memorizing entire NT books is way beyond what I imagined, but it is an excellent idea. God bless you brother.
