Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary writes a foreword to Memorize Scripture: You Can Do It by relating an astounding result of Bible memorization. Barbara continues by emphasizing the importance of adult memorization and provides a suggested five-year plan of Bible memorization that anyone can follow. By experiencing it herself, she believes we can receive increasing wisdom from God by meditating on memorized passages of Scripture. It has been a life-changing discovery.
