It is assumed the reader is already familiar with the Bible, not necessarily previous classroom courses in Bible, but the acquaintance which comes through reading the Book. With extra effort in diligently reading the Bible references furnished and use of reference works, an inadequate knowledge of Scripture may be overcome. Reading fifty pages a day in a moderately large-print Bible will take you from Genesis through Revelation in a month.
