blessedgrandmomLansdale, PAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fascinating resourceOctober 16, 2017blessedgrandmomLansdale, PAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book to use for an Old Teatament survey class at church. I have been going to Sunday School and church all my life, have read through the Bible several times, and have done studies on many indicidual books of the Bible. This book pulls the Old Testament together in a way that is informative and very interesting. At this writing, I am just finishing the Pentateuch chapters and am looking forward to continuing the study. It is hard not to jump ahead of the assigned reading! It is an excellent tool for new readers of the Bible as well as for those who have been reading and studying for years.
Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Resource!October 1, 2016Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is ideal for its intended audienceserious beginning students of the Old Testament. Now in its Second Edition, this volume already has a successful reputation. Paul House and Eric Mitchell are both well respected scholars. Theres a helpful section entitled Beginning the Study that helps you get off to a good start.
Part 1 launches into the Pentateuch. The bulk of the volume is given over to discussing individual OT books. Additional information is woven in as you are studying the individual books. The graphs and maps are from the reservoir that B & H Publishing usually draws from and are outstanding. While we might disagree on some little point made, this is a particularly great introduction to surveying the Old Testament.
If you want to maximize your learning experience, be sure to secure Old Testament Survey: A Students Guide2nd Edition as well. It is one of the best student guides of its kind that I have seen.
This is a great addition to any Bible study library.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
