Survey of the Old Testament- Everyman's Bible Commentary - eBook
Information is exactly what I was looking for!
Great overview of the Old Testament providing insight to chronology, significance and key concepts of each book without being overwhelming. The content is wonderful.
However the ebook format has a few issues. The charts in particular are very small and difficult to read.

This is a great book. I recommend it to all studying the Bible - both professionally as well as personally. Five stars.

Makes sense of it
For me, reading one of those Bible-in-a-Year books was quite frustrating. Ironically, Survey of the OT, at 300 pages, is far less overwhelming. If I quit trying to rush it, I will really understand by the time I finish. Extremely user-friendly, includes outlines, maps, chronologies. For normal folks, not scholars, and yet it seems scholarly. The Old Testament is well over half the Bible!

I don't wanna return this book!
I borrowed this book from a neighbor and now I don't want to return it! I think I'll get my own copy. This book really boils the vastness of the Old Testament down to the nuts and bolts. Just read a chapter and then go to the Bible book it discussed and read it. Your understanding will be so much clearer.
