This book is an introduction to memory. The author examines what memory is, what memory is capable of, and what benefits might be obtained by committing Scriptures to memory. Suggestions are offered for training one's memory and different methods are explored, among which include: the fixity of thought, the use of sight and sound in the connection with the remembrance of a subject, the helpfulness of writing, the practice of association, the distinction between recalling and reviewing, and the necessity of persistent practice. This book should prove useful to any student attempting to put more of God's word to memory.
