Willie, since when did it become a character flaw to read our books over again? I have tons of books I read over and over because I can't digest or remember it in just one reading. Reading and hearing God's Word too - over and over again helps me to retain it in my memory and then my heart. I think that is why it's a good idea to memorize Bible verses. Faith comes by hearing (and hearing and hearing) and hearing by Word of God. It's also a good idea to put in cds in your car while driving to hear the Word of God. It's good to have Christian music to uplift the heart to keep us reminded of His love for us and His instruction for us. Then we can not only remember it by the memorization but putting a tune to it also helps retain it in our memory.
I also constantly go to the Strong's concordance and different Bible commentary too. I like the Ryrie Study Bible NASB version probably because I've been using it longest and find it easy to understand (although I don't agree with all Mr.Ryrie says) I so respect him as a man of God and am so thankful for my different study Bibles.
