Excerpt from “How to Memorize the Bible,” Dr. William Evans,
“Dr. Evans memorized the entire King James Version of the Bible
plus the New Testament of the American Standard Version. Who
better to teach memorization? ...
“To show the possibilities of memory training at old age, I refer to
the instance of a New York editor who gave an account of his own
experience in the study of the Scriptures. He states how that when
seventy-four years old, he began, in a systematic way, to commit
the Scriptures to memory, and in a short time was able to repeat
from memory a considerable part of the entire New Testament.
After enumerating the many blessings and benefits that came to
him from this practice, he adds:
“I am not now sorry that about five years ago I resolved to do what
during these years I had been seeking to do. My only regret is that
the resolution was formed at so late a period. Had its date been
much earlier, as it might have been, and, as I now think, it should
have been, the benefit to me, as I have no doubt, would have been
correspondingly greater. What I have gained in the way of mental
relief and spiritual comfort from the process described I would not
exchange for all the honor and wealth of this world.”
Thus we see that age is no barrier to success in memory training.”
[Dr. Evans recommends the following tips,]
1. Each suggestion must be followed to the very letter.
2. There should be daily practice to insure the greatest possible
amount of benefit to the student.
3. Be content, at first, with the mastery of a little each day.
4. Take pleasure in your study.
5. Learn your lesson with the intention of remembering it forever.
6. Remember that the aim of this course of instruction in the
training of the memory is not the accumulation of a mass of
memorized material, but to build up, strengthen, and train
the memory to do its appointed work.
7. Be sure not to take up the second principle until you have
thoroughly mastered the first.

CBM - At least two-thirds of uneducated children in the world
today are girls. Without access to educational opportunities, girls
are at a higher risk to become marginalized and exploited. They are
more likely to contract HIV and AIDS and have a higher chance of
dying during childhood than their educated female peers. They are
also less likely to own land, get a decent job, have a say in society
or break out of the crushing cycle of poverty. Please pray for
CBM’s “SHE MATTERS” program designed to raise awareness on
the injustice of gender bias in education and provide innovative
programming where girls are given equal opportunities to develop
their gifts and abilities.
