As children, we learned many of the stories from the Old Testament. We learned about David and Goliath. We read about Noah and the Flood. Perhaps we even acted out the scenes from the Battle of Jericho or Israel's crossing of the Red Sea in a church play. We remember these stories even into adulthood. Yet, the way in which all of these stories are connected together in order to tell a much bigger story is often not fully understood. Somehow, in the midst of all the story telling, we missed the most important story...the story of redemption and salvation through Christ. Not only is this the most important story that has ever been told, it is the story which is found on every page of the Old Testament.
The Chronological Survey of the Old Testament has been written to encourage the student to see the entire Old Testament as a unified message. The book can be used in Sunday School, small groups, or individual Bible study to enrich the understanding of the broader message from God to man given in the Old Testament. Provided in a workbook format, the reader is encouraged to take an active role in the learning process. Discussion questions and review exercises are also included at the end of each major section of the book.
