MESSAGE TO READERS: As a high school Bible teacher, it has always been my prayer and desire to have available in our Christian schools and churches a clear, understandable, yet very practical and applicable curriculum for our students a survey of each of the books of the Bible. A few years back, our high school Bible curriculum was changed to include Old Testament and New Testament survey. I volunteered to put the OT material together, not really knowing all that was involved. After much prayer and soul-searching, and many hours of hard work, I have put together a survey of the Old Testament that I believe will be beneficial spiritually to the one who teaches it, and for every student who studies it. It contains a brief summary of each book, an introduction and background, including the author, some practical applications from each book as to how the message of that day can apply to us today. I have also included some of the basic stories portrayed from each book and how they relate to us. It is my prayer that this study of God’s OT covenant to His people will not only bring us new insights as to what went on during OT times, but what biblical principles can we learn and put to practice from them as we live our lives serving the same God that instructed Abraham to sacrifice his son and also told Moses to go and free His people from Egypt so they could be free to worship Yahweh at the very mountain Moses was called. I believe this will be a fascinating study about real people living real lives in the midst of a real God!
