This book outlines a program which will take you through the history of Israel by reading through the historical books, Genesis to Nehemiah, chronologically. Old Testament history is divided into 196 Bible readings (approximately 1 chapter each), along with some suggestions on how to cover the material and keep it interesting. For each reading there is a series of questions to help you focus on the significant details. There are also a number of background notes, and some suggestions for further study. This book won't answer all your questions, but it will give you a well-thought-out program of reading and studying the ancient history of Israel. This is intended as a first history course for the early elementary grades, though many parents are using it with high school students. Suggestions are given for supplemental materials for varying grade levels.
