I wanted a deeper understanding of the OT and started at the beginning. This book does just that by "digging deeper" and asking questions that takes it to a deeper personal relationship with God. I can't put it down. It leaves me wanting more. I also like the way it is divided into 4 sections to add even more depth to the historical background.
Before Abraham: Creation,Sin and the Nature of God

We love Dr. MacArthur's bible studies. His notes are informative and his questions are thought provoking. We have studied many New Testament study books written by him. We have talked about taking a fresh look at the Old Testament and thought we would start at the beginning with Genesis since he now offers this series.
After I led my family through this study, my wife has begun a women's Bible study at our house. The women love it, and Dr. MacArthur's studies always challenge the learner to a greater discernment and understanding of Scripture.
I am going through this study with a friend and it has been really good so far. I look forward to it every week and I am excited to see how God will use it in conjunction with His Word to open our hearts to the truth and bring us into closer fellowship with Him. As with MacArthur's other studies, I would definitely recommend this to others.
