Let's Read & Study the Old Testament!
One big goal we had in our home was that our children would read the Bible cover to cover during high school. We created 2 courses to accomplish this goal: Old Testament Survey and New Testament Survey.
Old Testament Survey takes teens through the entire Old Testament in chronological order from Genesis to Malachi. Yes! You will read the entire Old Testament! Don’t worry. It’s a 2-year, 2-credit course.
Would you like your high school teenagers to read the entire Old Testament in two years?
Would you like them to learn to use some Bible Study Reference Tools such as handbooks, commentaries, and atlases?
This two year, two-credit Bible Survey Class also has a fun twist: profile pages for Old Testament book writers, so that teens can use Bible reference tools in a fun way!
Yes, your teens will work hard with this course, but they will grow in their walk with the Lord at the same time because this is not a superficial survey of the Old Testament!! The goal of this course is not just information, but transformation!
Students will Meet the Following Old Testament Book Authors
Adults and Advanced Middle-School students will enjoy this class too.
Aside from the information-packed, consumable Old Testament Survey Worktext and enjoying the book of books, God's Word, you have the option to read many historical fiction mentioned in the course or historical fiction of your choice. We always find that historical fiction makes history come alive!
Here are the living books and historical fiction you can read in this course:
Old Testament of the Holy Bible
Illustrated Bible Handbook by Lawrence O. Richards (Thomas Nelson) or other Bible Handbook
Josephus: Thrones of Blood (paraphrase of William Whiston's classic translation).
Adam & His Kin by Ruth Beechick
Deborah The Peaceful Warrior by AnnTyra Adams
Hittite Warrior by Joann Williamson
Journey for Tobiyah by Barbara E. Morgan or King Solomon’s Navy by Nora Benjamin Kubie
The God King by Joann Williamson
Hand Me Another Brick by Charles Swindoll
The print version of Old Testament Survey is not available, but will hopefully be available in the future at Amazon.
