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 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 historic value 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.

I recommend this book as an excellent reference source on the OT from a conservative evangelical scholar. Very scholarly and with good critiques of the Higher Criticism approach to biblical scholarship. Read full review
