Old Testament

Book Description

This book will serve as an introduction to the literature and message of the Old Testament in general, but it also provides a more detailed study of the three foundational books-Genesis, Exodus and Deuteronomy- on which the rest of the Bible stands.

Those who are new to the study of the Bible will find that Gateway to the Old Testament will help to build a secure and lasting foundation for a life-time of study, while others for whom the Old Testament is already a well-known companion will find insight which will help towards a deeper and even more rewarding grasp of the message of Scripture as a whole.
