About this item

"They laughed when I said I could name all 27 books of the New Testament . . . but after I named them all in order, plus the 46 books of the Old Testament, they begged me to show them how I did it."

Yes, I know that memorizing the Faith is no substitute for living a holy life, but even devout people can't live by truths and precepts they don't remember.

That's why, over 700 years ago, St. Thomas Aquinas perfected an easy method for his students to memorize most any information, but especially the truths taught by Christ and His Church.

As the years passed, our need for this ancient art of memorization grew, yet somehow our culture largely forgot it . . . which is why today, when you and I try to remember a list of things, we have to repeat their names over and over. Or, to remember to call the dentist, we tie a string on our finger. And we clutch at any means whatsoever to recall our passwords for ATMs, credit cards, and voicemail, our login names for Yahoo, eBay, and Amazon, and the host of other names and numbers that clog our minds and clutter our days.

Now, thanks to the delightful pages of Memorize the Faith!, you can easily keep all these in mind - and learn the Faith! - by tapping into the power of the classical memory system that helped(more...)

I never knew I had it in me!
This is an excellent book that will show you how to overcome your (in my case, weak) natural memory and harness new skills to remember a great deal of items! I am astounded! It is practical and easy to follow and the book is an easy and humorous read. For the woman who forgets three things going to the store (now I won't!), I have memorized all the books of the Bible. This can be applied to anything! Wonderful work!

Brilliant. Why don't we still teach this?
Bottom line is that my two kids were able to memorize the Catholic concepts that this book offers and they both know them three years later. I know them too. I use the method of location to memorize all kinds of things now.

This book helped me build treasure in heaven
It's the end of June and I've read 10 books this year so far. This book was easily the best of them. True to its promises, I memorized the books of the Bible in less than an hour. Then I applied these principles to my work and it saved me time and helped me deliver value to my employer and clients. Finally, I learned some things about human nature, virtue and sin which will help me grow as a person. Thank you, Kevin. This book was phenomenal!

An unforgettable book!
I was somewhat skeptical this book could deliver the claims it made. I had read other memory books in the past and was unimpressed with the methods they proposed. There seemed to be something missing that kept me from fully realizing my potential. This book provided that missing part. I don't want to give away what it is but, I can assure, if you apply the methods the author outlines in this book you will definitely increase your ability to retain and recall at will almost anything you can imagine. It took only two, 45 minutes sessions for me to memorize all 73 books of the Bible, in order, and backwards! Mr. Vost writes in a breezy style that entertains while informing. His book will be especially useful to anyone tasked with teaching others be they child or adult. If as a teacher you have struggled for a way to make a dry list or technical term memorable, this book will give you everything you need to make that happen.
