A man who memorized the entire Book of Revelation from the Bible will recite it at the Rice branch of Two Rivers Baptist Church at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 17 in the Old Village Hall on Rice’s Main Street.
Tom Meyer, a member of Wordsower Ministry of Salem, Ore., is a published author who gives workshops on techniques for memorizing the Bible. He has two master’s degrees from Jerusalem University College.
The Book of Revelations is the last book in the Bible’s New Testament and was written by “John of Patmos.” The book is an eerie, at times disturbing, evocation of the last days of the Earth as seen through apocalyptic visions written down by John of the island of Patmos. The Book of Revelations contains images of gruesome destruction but also of angels sounding trumpets and God’s presence on Earth promising the coming again of Christ.
