Having the right reference books can make Bible study so much easier, and rewarding. Sometimes, the Old Testament can be difficult to follow, and understand. So I was excited to hear about the new The Old Testament Handbook. I have not been disappointed!
The Old Testament Handbook Review
Not only is this a beautiful hardback book, The Old Testament Handbook is made to last. Cloth covered, with the title embossed in gold on the front, and on the spine. An attached ribbon bookmark, and a sewn binding, lends to its durability. It has a very elegant look and feel to it. The book looks great on a shelf, or displayed on your coffee table.
The back cover has a slip on paper jacket with all the information about the book.
I have loved going through this book. I will use this as my go to book for Bible study, since all of the books of the Old Testament is included.
At church, my pastor has been preaching through Genesis, so that’s the first chapter I checked out. Not too hard to find, as that’s the first book of the Bible. lol This book is filled with beautiful artwork. Every book has an in-depth introduction page like this one.
Old Testament Study Helps
There are timelines, maps, charts, illustrations, and other visual helps for every book of the Old Testament.
There are more than 75 in-depth word studies of keywords found in each Old Testament book. These are incredibly helpful during Bible study. Each word study takes you back to the original Hebrew word. It also gives you the pronunciation! Who doesn’t need help with that?! lol
The many charts in the book are comprehensive, as well as easy to read. They contain so much information, like The Hebrew Prophets in History below. it features the Prophet, the approximate dates, their location/home, the basic Bible passage, their central teaching, and their key verse. These are not charts that you will just refer to once.
Whether you want a reference book for your own studies, to help you teach, or to share the Bible with others, I highly recommend The Old Testament Handbook! It would make an awesome gift, too!
