"The New Testament Scriptures will never be properly understood by a person if the Old Testament Scriptures essentially remain a mystery to him," says Paul Benware.
Most Christians do not have a clear understanding of the pattern, unity, or progression of the Old Testament. They can tell stories of Moses, Noah, and David, but they aren't sure how all these events fit together. And they don't fully appreciate the doctrines found in the thirty-nine books between Genesis and Malachi. But the Old Testament does not have to be mysterious or confusing.
Newly revised, Dr. Benware offers a chronological approach to give you a bird's-eye view of the Old Testament, while his book-by-book analysis reveals important details and emphases. If you want a better understanding of the whole Bible, Survey of the Old Testament is the place to start.

little old meAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Makes sense of itJanuary 19, 2011little old meAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5For 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!
JackAmes, IowaAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5I don't wanna return this book!December 6, 2010JackAmes, IowaAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
