While the bulk of this blog remains business/professional in content, this page is devoted to making available some Christian resources created or recommended by Jeff.
1. Read the Bible Chart. This chart lists in order all the books and chapters of the Bible. Use it to cross off the chapters as you read them so that you can easily track your effort to read through all the Bible in any order you wish. The document prints with 2 charts on a sheet, so a single chart easily fits in most Bibles as a good bookmark. Nothing is dated, so you can take as much or as little time as you wish to complete the readings.
2. Bible Memory Brochure. This brochure contains 100 Bible verses plus the Ten Commandments chosen by Jeff as a recommended, well-rounded set of verses to memorize. Verses are quoted from the New International Version (1984) and are grouped into various categories. It also contains brief suggestions on how to memorize verses and why Christians need to memorize scripture. Several recommended resources for further study are also listed.
3. If you use an Android smartphone or tablet, I recommend the free Bible memory Android application called “Remember Me” which you can download from Google Play. You can also learn more about it at http://sites.google.com/site/rememberapp. You can either enter your own references and text or download the text of any verse from the New International Version (2010 edition). Use flashcards, listen to the list via audio, construct the verse from randomly placed words, etc. Based on your record of remembering, the app will cycle between all verses at various intervals – frequently for those missed and less frequently for those well memorized. Jeff added the verses in the Bible memory brochure above to this app on his smartphone and uses it regularly to review them.
4. Online Bible Memory Course. If you would like to follow a planned online course Jeff created that uses email reminders to help you learn the 100 verses in the Bible memory brochure above, then follow the instructions found in this document. You will be presented with two verses daily through a variety of questions types and questions will rotate back in the sequence based on whether you answer them correctly or not.
