Item description for An Overview of the Old Testament (Following God Through the Bible) by John Malseed...
Overview An Overview of the Old Testament contains a ?blueprint? Bible study that gives a brief sketch of every chapter in the Old Testament. Each ?blueprint? begins with easy to follow Scripture divisions that are summed up with challenging self-examination and thought-provoking study questions. The study questions are designed to encourage readers to open their Bibles to find God?s truths. Prayer and praise points allow time for quiet contemplation and application of the lesson.
Allowing Scripture to be its own interpreter, An Overview encourages readers to compare Scripture with Scripture (1 Cor. 2:6?13) so that they can discover the true message God has for each of us. Unlike other books in the acclaimed Following God Bible Study series, An Overview does not give answers to the study questions asked, encouraging readers to find the answers in the greatest textbook of all time?the Bible. Whether it is used for group study, individual devotions or as a tool for preachers, An Overview of the Old Testament is a new and exciting way to learn the truth of God?s Word.
"Follow God's workings in the lives of people as you study the Old Testament chapter by chapter and verse by verse.""An Overview of the Old Testament"""contains a one-page synopsis and "blueprint" for almost every chapter in the Old testament. Each blueprint begins with easy-to-follow Scripture divisions that are summed up with challenging self-examination and though-provoking study questions. The study questions are designed to encourage readers to open their Bibles to find God's truths. Prayer and praise points allow time for quiet contemplation of the lesson. Each section and series of questions have the following purposes: * As a guide to make the study of Scripture easier and thus, motivate the user. * To help make the Scripture relevant to daily life. * To challenge the user to learn the great doctrines of the Bible by searching other Scriptures. The lessons are divided into five parts: * The Outline Section gives a bird's-eye view of each Bible chapter's content. * The Context Questions help the user understand the section in greater detail by honing in on points that are often missed. * The Research Study Questions challenge the user to search the Scriptures for answers, comparing one Scripture with another Scripture. * The Self-Examination Questions put the context of the Bible into a more practical form. * The Prayer and Praise Section allows for a time of quiet heart-searching in which readers are encouraged to talk to God and contemplate the lessons of the study. The aim of "Following God Through the Bible: An Overview of the Old Testament" is to open up the Word of God. The "questions "asked are just the tool for understanding, the "answers " are where the rubber meets the road.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Overview of the Old Testament (Following God Through the Bible)?
A one-of-a-kind reflective and contemplative, self-study tool, highly recommended Feb 3, 2007
Written by pastor and Bible college lecturer John Malseed, An Overview of the Old Testament is an interactive, consumable study guide meant to facilitate self-examination as well as a greater religious, philosophical, and spiritual understanding of the Old Testament. An Overview of the Old Testament is not a lengthy, detailed summary of the biblical text; it is not even as long as a "Cliff Notes" style summary would be. Rather, each segment of the Old Testament is summarized in a set of sentences, followed by context questions, study questions with scripture cross-referencing, and self-examination questions for the reader. A blank line is provided for the reader to write a brief answer to each question. For example, Genesis Ch. 4 is summarized with "1-8 Abel is killed by his jealous brother Cain. / 9-24 Cain is punished by God and the first civilization is formed. / 25-26 Seth is born and men realize their need for God" and sample questions include "How did God instruct Cain?" (context), "According to the book of Hebrews, what was the key ingredient of Abel's offering? Heb. 11:4" (research study), and "Where in my list of priorities do I put God?" (self-examination). A one-of-a-kind reflective and contemplative, self-study tool, highly recommended for anyone seeking to better understand their personal connection to God through studying the Old Testament.
