Yes, even YOU can memorize Scripture if you really want to. If you are like most Christians, you don't think this is possible. HOWEVER, you can do it IF you have: 1) The willingness to learn, and 2) The proper tool. This book will provide the tool for you. All you need is the desire to get started. By following this easy plan, you will find that Scripture memory is also fun. This book addresses and answers the four main objections why you might think you cannot memorize Scripture: 1) Why should I memorize Scripture? 2) What good does it do? 3) It is too hard? 4) I don't have the time. Not only can you memorize Scripture, but you will actually enjoy it as you challenge yourself (and your friends) to grow in the knowledge of His Word. This book will help EVERY CHRISTIAN, to memorize 12 verses per year, or 52 verses per year, or more. Jesus told us that "out of a man's heart flows his thoughts, words and actions." If people learn the meaning of each word, like Mark 12:29-30, loving God with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength, the new memory grows very large in their brains and that new memory affects how they think, speak and behave. Bob Marette's book, "SCRIPTURAL CALENDAR: A Daily Guide To Help You Hide God's Word In Your Heart," is a surefire way to take a few minutes each day to commit God's Word to your memory and reshape your life!

In Augustine and the Fundamentalist's Daughter, Margaret Miles weaves her memoirs together with reflections on Augustine's Confessions. Having read and reread Augustine's Confessions, in admiration as well as frustration, over the past thirty-five years, Miles brings her memories of childhood and youth in a fundamentalist home into conversation with Augustine's effort to understand his life. The result is a fascinating work of autobiographical and theological reflection. Moreover, this project brings together a rare combination of insights on fundamentalists' convictions and habits of mind, as well as on differences among fundamentalists. Such reflections are especially urgent in this time in which fundamentalism is prominent in political and social discourse.
