This survey is illustrated with black and white photos, charts, and maps. Best-selling author Dr. Norman Geisler writes in an easy, informal style allowing any Christian a resource to understand Old Testament people and events. Each Old Testament book is discussed, its cultural and historical background explained as well as its theme. Two introductory Christ-centered chapters (Christ: The Key to the Inspiration and Canonization of the Bible and Christ: The Key to the Interpretation of the Bible) lay the foundation for the four sections of the book.
The world of the Old Testament can seem hard to understand, especially for people living in times and places so far removed from the ancient Middle East. "A Popular Survey of the Old Testament" is designed to help Christians enrich their understanding of Old Testament people and events. Illustrated with colored photos, charts, and maps this accessible survey will enrich one's Biblical reading and understanding. (65)
