- 10 Rules for Effortless Bible Reading
- Always read at night when you're tired.
- Open the book at random; your chances of striking a genealogy are pretty good.

- Tackle the most difficult passages first; they will encourage you to give up more quickly.
- Don't have a system; you might know where to start.

- Never attempt a group Bible study; confusion might disappear.
- Whatever you do, never, never become a regular daily reader; it might affect the way you live.
