What About This Book?
Here are comments from some who have read it!

I am so excited about your book and what is happening to me. I have not had such a conviction in a long time and I'm slowly working through Romans 8. Please pray for me. I know that the Lord wants me to do this, but it truly is going to have to be HIS work — my head is so dense.

For the first time in my life, I'm having fun memorizing Scripture. It's so hard, but it's so wonderful!


I just gotta tell you about my ride home last night. It snowed in New York and it took me 3 hours to get home, so I had lots of time to read your book! I just wanted to tell you — as I was reading I was saying to myself, "I've got to email May and let her know how great this is."

I really am into it. You did an amazing job! The writing is so well done, so wonderfully thought out. I want to give a copy to two friends of mine.


For the most part, Scripture memorization is a neglected discipline in modern evangelical Christianity. In The Sword May McClure has demonstrated just how important it is. Her book is written simply, yet persuasively, making an undeniable case for a largely abandoned practice. She shows how such important disciplines as effective mediation, prayer, and evangelism flow from a mind saturated in Scripture. She decisively refutes the common excuses for not memorizing and includes numerous practical and helpful suggestions for committing a passage to memory.

As a pastor, I finally realized that virtually all of my deepest longings for the spiritual growth of my congregation can be addressed through Bible memory. I believe that The Sword is just the answer for raising our awareness and challenging our reluctance.


Thank you so much for the book. I am almost finished with it and it is great! Almost perfect. I am going to use chapters 7 & 8 with my senior memorization class.
