"Kang may have given us the best primer now available on the practice, significane, and hidden depths of 'treasuring God's Word in our hearts.'"--Christianity Today, February 3, 2010 "Joshua Choonmin Kang helps us to appreciate and appropriate the power for transformation into Christlikeness that comes from knowing the Scriptures 'by heart.' He gives us encouraging words about the many good effects of memorization, and excellent instruction upon how to go about memorizing the Scriptures. If you will absorb his teachings and do what he says adapting it to your personal circumstances and making it a persistent part of your day-to-day life then you will experience the renewal of your mind and undergo the transformation of your life which everyone knows should come from following Jesus closely. Grace will see to it. The Word of God which is 'living and powerful' (Hebrews 4:12) will form you in the likeness of Christ."--from the foreword by Dallas Willard" "This is a wise book, practical, winsome, and above all communicating a vibrant love for God and his Word."--John Wilson, Christianity Today, January 2011 "If you need to be encouraged to memorize scripture, Scripture by Heart is a good prod.

Bixler, Congregational Libraries Today" "Scripture by Heart comes from a pastor who has discovered the benefits to memorizing scripture and who provides here some 30 short devotional readings and spiritual practices connected to the memorization process.
