STUDENT STUDY GUIDE begins with the student answering ten basic questions concerning the Old Testament. What is the Old Testament? Who wrote the Old Testament? Where, When, Why and How was the Old Testament written? What are three major features of the Old Testament: Revelation, Inspiration and Preservation? How should we study the Old Testament? Why should you memorize verses of the Old Testament? When should one read the Old Testament? BIBLE MEMORY VERSES (97 memorized accumulatively) aid the student to say with the Psalmist "Thy word have I hidden in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." This STUDENT STUDY GUIDE closes with an incomplete outline for each of the 39 books of the Old Testament. Each outline has space for personal notes, classroom instruction plus THE BASICS: Author, Date of Writing, Name Meaning, Passages for Particular Emphasis, Verses for Memory, Characters of Interest and Content Description. Following high school, a Bachelor of Science degree was received from Piedmont College, Demorest, GA plus a Georgia Teacher's Professional Certificate. Then came the Army Security Agency and three years later came employment with the National Security Agency, Washington, DC. Meeting Edith Campen from North Carolina led to marriage, February 1, 1957. A year after marriage, God called me to the ministry. Graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft. Worth, TX with a Bachelor of Divinity (updated to Masters of Divinity) and Masters in Religious Education (updated to Masters of Arts), God directed me to serve Him. For some 50 years, it was a pleasure to serve God and people in churches and classrooms as Minister of Youth, Minister of Education, Minister of Education/Administration, and Minister of Pastoral Care. It was a joy to teach this Old Testament Bible Survey Course to ninth grade students at Cypress Community Christian School, Houston, TX.
