I must admit, I was quite skeptical when I received this Bible. Who on earth would want to read the Bible in 24 hours, when the main point of Bible reading is to meditate and study the Scriptures? However, after reading the pages at the beginning describing this method, I decided to give it a try. The main focus of this program is to create greater familiarity and retention of what one is reading.

Four speeds are discussed, and directions are given for how to proceed through the Bible at each of: Light Speed, Landmark Speed, Learning Speed, and Meditative Speed. When going through each of the different speeds it is absolutely amazing how much you can pick up and retain about the Bible that you may never have noted before. It also helps to put different events into perspective and see how the Bible relates to itself as a whole.

These techniques really work and I truly would not have believed it had I not tried it. I have been reading the Bible for almost twenty years and have been seriously studying it for the past ten years. I learned many things using these speed techniques that I had never known before. The author does not in any way encourage readers to stop with the quick run-through. The entire program is designed to create context, interest, and perspective so that the Bible does not seem so daunting.

The print is large and different sections are underlined or highlighted in bold print in order to facilitate easier reading. The main goal of the editor and publisher of this Bible is to get the Bible off people's shelves and make it not just the best-selling book in the world, but the most read too.
