For more than 30 years, Susan Heck has been memorizing the Bible and has already completed the whole New Testament. In this week’s interview, she shares the process she uses to memorize Scripture as well as what she does each day to review what she’s already committed to memory. Check it out:

Susan Heck is an author, speaker and pastor’s wife who has memorized all of the New Testament and many books out of the Old Testament.
In her book A Call to Scripture Memory, she challenges women of all ages to make Scripture memory a priority, but in this interview, she dives a bit deeper into her process for memorizing, reviewing and recalling books of the Bible.
Like me, she encourages people to memorize books of the Bible and not just verses, pointing to a need for context to help understand what is being said.
In this interview she explains:
- The easiest and hardest sections of the Bible to commit to memory;
- Why she carries around a photo copy of the Bible instead of the actual book;
- Reasons she promotes memorizing whole books of the Bible instead of verses;
- The most important tip for those just starting off memorizing;

While my method for Bible memorization is different than Susan’s, I think it’s valuable to understand how others have done it and borrow from their bag of tricks.
If you enjoyed this interview, you’ll also glean a lot from others who have shared their own testimony, including Professor Tom Meyer, aka “The Bible Memory Man”, and even the author of my favorite book on Bible memory, Dr. Andy Davis, who has memorized 43 books of the Bible.
