In the beginning of the Bible the plan is clearly laid out for you and is easy to understand and implement in your reading. I am not going to go into the particulars of his plan but I will tell you that it works and that is what is important.
Now, I know what you are thinking; reading the Bible should not be a speed-read. Let me say this; I read my Bible everyday and study the Scriptures, yet I found this plan to enhance my Bible reading and my retention of what I was reading. That is a big plus for me. You can still study your Scriptures and meditate in the Word; but trust me, your reading comprehension will definitely increase, and you don't have to use this method every time you open your Bible.
Just speaking solely on The Light Speed Bible itself is a joy. It is a wonderful Bible.
The lettering is just large enough to be easily read and include subtopics for quick finding. In the back we find what is called," Holman CSB Bullet Notes," which is a listing of biblical words and terms. All in all "The Light Speed Bible," is just what you need to enhance your Bible reading and understanding; I highly recommend this work to all those who want more in their understanding of God's Word. Thumbs-up on this one.
MidWest Book Review
The beginning of this Light Speed Bible version contains instructions on how to read at a high speed with ease, maximize your understanding, and retain what you've read. This is done through a reading plan called speed zones - Light Speed, Landmark Speed, and Learning Speed (and an optional plan, Meditative Speed). Each speed zone is straightforward and clearly described.
The speed zone concept is a different but good approach to reading the Bible. Once I got used to it, I found it very helpful, and best of all, discovered that it actually works. The format of the HCSB Light Speed Bible edition is easy to follow because of the lettering, font size, headings, sub headings, and specific underlined passages.
Best of all, I like the fact that the program is not about reading the Bible quickly for speed's sake, but about reading it in an efficient and active manner so that I'm able to get the most out of what I've read.
This is an encouraging and reader friendly Bible version.
Based on proven speed reading and study scanning methods, the Holman CSB* Light Speed Bible seeks to help people achieve reading all the way through the Bible and really gain information from that reading. The first chapter's title, "The Adventure of Whole Bible Reading," amplifies well the aim of this book. Following a discussion of why Christians aren't reading the Bible more and the benefits of this system, Proctor gives details and techniques (best read at normal speed) for implementing light speed reading. Relax and enjoy rapid, effectual, broad-stroke reading. All this has been honed and proved in Proctor's seminars on light speed reading of the Bible, using the Holman CSB Light Speed Bible. These first three quick passes will prepare you for a fourth zone--which Proctor unfortunately calls optional--titled Meditative Speed, an in depth study of one passage including reflection and memorization.
Having scanned new textbooks and used speed reading when in need of it, I recognize what Proctor is seeking to achieve. If you have never read the Bible through, are preparing to teach, or are beginning in-depth study, The HCSB Light Speed Bible will be of interest. Keep in mind that the idea of this book is adaptable to your own speeds. Also, please remember that Meditative Speed should not be optional. Proctor does mention this at one point when he states that the first three reading passes prepare you to "maximize the impact of the Meditative Zone." - Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
