First Letters: A new tool for Bible Bowl
This is my site Written by bbbco on July 30, 2012 – 10:40 pm

This is a post consisting of a new study tool I created for my Bible Bowl friends who are looking for a new method to studying and memorization for this year’s Bible Bowl text of the book of Acts in the English Standard Version (ESV). You might want to reference my earlier post on the First Letters memorization technique to understand the concept behind this variation of studying.

I am releasing these tools on a free to distribute basis, with the opportunity to send a donation if this tool has become helpful to you or your church and Bible Bowl team.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Download the zip file containing the PDFs that you want to use. Unpack/unzip the file to extract the PDFs inside. Each PDF corresponds to the associated chapter. Use a PDF viewer to view and print the pages for you to study.

HOW TO STUDY:

Follow the instructions found in my previous post on the First Letters technique to learn the concept. Then, begin reading and learning the text of Acts chapter by chapter. Once you feel like you have a good grasp on the chapter, see if you can recite it using only the First Letter tool as a hint to trigger your memory to recall the text.

THE TOOL:

There are four different variations that I generated for the First Letters tool. You are welcome to choose the one that best suites you:

Original

  First Letters - Acts 1-28 - Original (66.6 KiB, 1,343 hits)
