"Stones of Remembrance" is a book of Scripture verses to read when afraid, angry, etc., or to memorize to strengthen your memory. In the first section, the author very briefly summarized his points in "Memory Rescue" on Rest, Exercise, Meditation and Prayer, Eating healthy, Meaningful work, Bonding with others, Relaxation, Absolution, New learning, Concentration, Enjoyment, and Socialization. Under each of these subsections, he included several verses relating to that topic. Since topics like exercise aren't directly addressed in the Bible, some verses were a bit of a stretch. For exercise, he suggested verses about running the race or God giving us strength.
The second section contained 12 Scripture verses each "to remember when" you're anxious, grateful, afraid, depressed, happy, lonely, sick, angry, tired, impatient, unsure of yourself, experience doubt, need hope, need comfort, or need strength. The third section had 12 Scripture verses that "every Christian should know."
At the back of the book, the author included tips for memorizing verses, a list of healthy snacks for boosting your memory, and a list of activities that can help improve your memory (like doing crossword puzzles or learning something new). I'd expected information about studies on how Scripture memorization helps your brain, so I was disappointed. But I'd recommend this book to people who enjoy collections of verses for reference or memorization.
I received this book as a free review copy from the publisher.
