Memorizing Scripture


scripture memoryDr. Daniel Morris, author of “Why You Really Can Memorize Scripture” and his wife served as missionaries in Chiapas, Mexico. He is presently the pastor of the Baptist Church he founded in Tuxtla Gutierrez and is dedicated to training Mexican pastors and counseling.

When, as a teenager, he was called to missions, Dr. Morris found encouragement in God’s Word and sought to memorize it. He began a habit of memorizing consecutive passages of Scripture and learned through study and experience how God created our memory.

In the book, Dr. Morris outlines his method beginning with how our memory works and the importance of memorizing scripture. He walks readers through the steps of Scripture memorization through repetition and helpful phrases.

Though he assures readers they can memorize Scripture following his method, I am uncertain as to how helpful the idea of catch phrases may be. It is highly possible the continuous repetition of the passages of Scripture helps the most. Answering and meditating on questions he presents in the book may help in the understanding of some passages and may help you learn to paraphrase. It may help some people, but I don’t know if it will be helpful to everyone.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Life Sentencing Publishing, as part of their Book Review Blogger Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
