Light Speed Bible Paperback – October 1, 2005
This Bible has several features to help the reader quickly understand the purpose and direction of a book or chapter and then examine the passages in detail. The name Light Speed Bible is because of this format and the Light Speed Reading course. At the beginning of the Bible the introductory matter details this reading technique that with practice will allow the reader to read through the entire Bible in just a few days. The Light Speed reading technique involves reading through a large section of the Bible three times at different speeds. The first is very fast to get a feel for the structure and basic direction of the book. The second pass is to get all the headings and subheadings so you know some of the details of the section including important concepts and points. To facilitate this the Light Speed Bible has numerous single sentence summaries, bold printing, and underlined items. These are done specifically to facilitate this process and part of the way in which this Bible is designed for high speed reading. The third pass is to get the details of passage and it is here that you read each word. Once you learn the technique it takes about 16 hours total to read the entire Bible. If you can dedicate an hour each evening you can read the entire Bible in just over two weeks. This Bible uses the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation, a common modern language translation. The HCSB Light Speed Bible is an excellent Bible that is designed from the ground up to encourage reading through the entire Bible and is highly recommended for anyone seeking to achieve this goal.

If you do get this Bible, read the back cover, then read the entire introduction so you will understand what you are dealing with.Follow all instructions which begins with your reading Genesis and taking a reading test when you have finished. I do recommend purchase of the Light Speed Bible. I give BIbles to other believers thus the reason for my purchasing more than one.
The rest is my suggestion: After you do the above, Go to the New Testament and read through the Book Of John 3 times. After the third reading read from John through Revelation Then go back to Matthew and read through Revelation.
Then Go to Genesis and read Genesis through Revelation.
After this read the first six books of the Bible 3 times. By this point you will really begin having a really good foundation in the Word of God and your reading speed and comprehension should be greatly improved. I would also get myself a Bible dictionary and a really good study Bible.I added all this extra suggestions, because I wanted to help believers to grow in their knowledge and Faith in God
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
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
