      Do not memorize, read and compare the stories in the text to a high ideal. Do the stories measure up to the ideal?

      "Violence by man against man is in contradiction with any religion worthy of that name," Pope Francis January 18, 2016.

      Read the Bible with this Principle in mind.

      Mnemonics ought to make some kind of sense, like the Roosters Can Crow. Others of these don't make sense & are therefore not easy to remember. Also, there are 46 books in the OT recognized by most, if not all, Christian denominations.
