When I was a student at the Bible Institute of Los Angeles, the entire new world of the Bible was opened to me. Of the different ways of studying the Bible, the most helpful was the course in memorizing Scripture verses.
Oscar Lowry, renowned Bible teacher, taught this course. I have ever been grateful to him. Stars for Sylvia is based on some of the verses outlined in his course. Out of a thankful heart this book is dedicated to his memory. It is true that “he being dead, yet speaketh” (Hebrews 11:4).
