The $100,000 Word




Is memorizing Scripture a waste of time? The 17,000 contestants who signed up for the first-ever National Bible Bee competition did not think so. One of them, Daniel Staddon, decided that it would be worth the effort regardless of the prize and embarked on a mission to hide God’s Word in his heart. In this book, he shares the techniques that made it possible for him to memorize 1,500 verses in six months and go on to win the Bible Bee’s grand prize of $100,000. But he took away from the experience something far more valuable: a whole new appreciation for the importance of every word of Scripture—the eternal Word!

“This is not just a book about winning a contest. It provides practical ideas on how to memorize and the secrets that link memorization to success in life. As I carefully read through the material, I could not help but say to myself: ‘This is a must-read for everyone who wants to discover God’s way of life.'”

“This is a practical and motivational book for anyone who wants to commit to memorizing God’s Word as a regular discipline, and especially for those families who are embarking on another year of the National Bible Bee. Daniel humbly shares his story and tips for Bible memorization in a way that drives at the heart level as well as intellect. I recommend it for your family as well as mine!”
