The Bible can be found almost anywhere, from a church pew to the middle drawer of a hotel nightstand. But did you know that the Bible is the most owned, yet least read, book in the world? We firmly believe that the Light Speed Bible is the answer to this dilemma.

Many people say they want to read the Bible, but it’s easy to get sidetracked in a fast-paced world where almost everything is just a click away. According to both Gallup and Barna surveys, no more than one-quarter of the adults in the United States claim to have read the entire Bible. And with religion quickly being nudged into spotlight of mainstream media, Americans’ knowledge of the Bible, or lack thereof, is astounding:

  • Only 42 percent of American adults know who delivered the Sermon on the Mount.

  • A mere 35 percent of American adults can name the four Gospels.
  • Less than half of American adults can name the first book of the Bible.
  • Only 35 percent of American adults know the country that ruled Jerusalem in the time of Jesus.

  • An amazing 12 percent of adults actually think that the name of Noah’s wife was Joan of Arc!


Bestselling author and religious scholar William Proctor changes all of that with an easy-to-use, comprehensive Bible reading plan in his latest book, The HCSB Light Speed Bible (ISBN 1-58640-066-5, Broadman & Holman, October 2005, $19.97).

The HCSB Light Speed Bible is a study program that can empower anyone with at least a seventh-grade reading ability to read every word of the entire Bible in 24 hours or less – with good comprehension. In The HCSB Light Speed Bible, Proctor maximizes speed and retention for reading and studying the Bible by employing four reading zones.

The first three reading speeds—Light, Landmark, and Learning—are designed to build familiarity with the text, stimulate questions, focus attention, and enhance speed and comprehension.

The fourth speed zone, Meditative, suits those who want to spend additional time on a particular verse or passage, including in-depth study, deep reflection, and memorization. Readers can even measure their growing understanding and comprehension of the text by using The HCSB Light Speed Bible’s self-quizzes to track personal progress.

Proctor, a Harvard College and Law School graduate and former U.S. Marine Corps trial lawyer and military judge, has authored, co-authored, or ghostwritten more than 80 books, including several international bestsellers. He currently lives in Vero Beach, Florida, with his wife, Pam.
