In the years leading up to seminary I read the Bible chronologically. That practice, probably more than anything else, helped me piece together the story of redemption. At seminary all students were required to take a Bible Knowledge exam to see how well they knew the Scriptures. Though I did not come to faith until I was in college I scored higher than many of my fellow students (many who grew up in Christian homes) and tested out of an obligatory class.
