He makes selective use of the best and latest literature in Old Testament studies, and offers a balanced perspective. Schultz sifts the facts and follows them to their inevitable conclusions. However, when the evidence is not definitive, he exercises caution, presenting his own interpretation as only one of several possible views. Schultz also appraises the impact of recent archaeological and historical findings on the understanding of key portions of the Old Testament.

It is imperative for every growing Christian to study the Bible. Volume one of this new series will enrich both the believer's knowledge and life with its survey of the Old Testament. Chapters conclude with projects, questions and exploration activities that not only test readers' grasp of the materials but also provide opportunity for more detailed and intensive study. This well-executed work does much to acquaint people with the Old Testament's major divisions and its amazing unity as a whole--all of which can lead to a deeper faith.

Excellent overall survey of the Old Testament. Great Ministry preparation..
This is the text I turn to for a easy to use survey of the Old testament, which I supplement with my own additional readings.
This is an informative easy to follow book. It gives you multiple perspectives on the Old Testament and how to study the Bible
This book is basically an overview of the Old Testament with an underlying link to its companion volume concerning the New Testament. Only the highlights are covered and broad topics are explored. A general outline structure is also provided for each book. At the end of each section are some discussion questions that would be appropriate for most bible study groups.

For the person who is just starting to read the Bible for themselves instead of only hearing the preacher's version, this little book will probably provide some benefit. However, for the serious student, this book doesn't go into any real depth and will likely disappoint. You will find the same type of overview for each book in most Bible Dictionaries, to give you an idea on the depth of the discussion.

Most people will easily read this book within a week and will not likely pick it up twice unless you're looking for some very brief info quickly. This book is more appropriate for middle schoolers or early high schoolers unless of course you haven't read the Bible before.
Teacher but not preacher.

This paperback was exactly what I was looking for. It is a very in depth review of everything in the Old Testament, given in a timeline format instead of book by book. There are about 15 questions at the end of each chapter. Most of the answers are found in the text but some require personal conclusions, sometimes careful thought and consideration are needed before you can truely answer a question.

This is not a light overview for a beginner. I would, however, recomend this book for anyone interested in history, regardless of religious background.
