Barry Huddleston got the idea for The Acrostic Summarized Bible when taking a class taught by Terry Hall (a member of Walk Thru The Bible Ministries) in the 1980’s. The Acrostic Summarized Bible was last published in 1992 in Grand Rapids, by Baker. See the Introduction to his book on this blog under the  “Acronym” category in the article by Bruce H. Wilkinson – entitled “Why Use Acrostics For Biblical Retention?”
