What do you think of when you think of the Old Testament? Do you recall individual stories like David and Goliath, or Daniel in the lion’s den? Or are you able to see the Old Testament as a panoramic view of God’s redemptive work? Here is a book that will help you see the Old Testament as a unified whole. Replete with helpful charts and maps, this useful survey of the Old Testament by Irving L. Jensen is sure to open up your understanding of the Old Testament whether you are a seminary professor or a beginning student of the Bible.
The method of Jensen’s Survey of the Old Testament is to motivate the student to discover new truths on his own. There is none of the all too common spoon-feeding found in many Bible helps. Consequently, the usefulness of this guide is virtually inexhaustible, written in Irving Jensen’s usual precise, clear, and understandable style. Jensen’s Survey of the Old Testament is the only survey guide of its kind and a must for every student of the Bible.
