The Old Testament is not light summer reading. Some chapters seem downright boring, such as the genealogies, the census listings, and the laws, and others gruesome and wrong, such as the graphic descriptions of sacrifices or killing the enemy. Why would God want us to read all that?
Scholar Dr. Herbert Lockyer calls the Bible "the masterpiece of the divine Mind" because despite its sixty-six books, it is woven throughout with the same truth: the gospel. In this study of the Pentateuch, Lockyer provides a birds-eye view of the first five books of the Bible, systematically explaining how each of the first five books fit inside God's greater plan. His detailed, practical, gospel-infused survey provides ample reason for why the Old Testament is still relevant to today's believer. Includes charts, questions for review at the end of each chapter, and outlines of each of the five books.

About the Author
DR. HERBERT LOCKYER (1886–1984) was a preacher and Bible teacher, and the author of more than fifty books. His best-known titles include All the Men of the Bible and All the Women of the Bible. Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to an invitation to speak at the Moody Bible Institute’s fiftieth anniversary in 1936. His warm reception at that event led to his ministry in the United States. He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London.
