The Old Testament is not light summer reading. Some chapters seem downright boring, such as the genealogies, the census listings, and the laws, and others gruesome and wrong, such as the graphic descriptions of sacrifices or killing the enemy. Why would God want us to read all that?
Scholar Dr. Herbert Lockyer calls the Bible 'the masterpiece of the divine Mind' because despite its sixty-six books, it is woven throughout with the same truth: the gospel. In this study of the Pentateuch, Lockyer provides a birds-eye view of the first five books of the Bible, systematically explaining how each of the first five books fit inside God's greater plan. His detailed, practical, gospel-infused survey provides ample reason for why the Old Testament is still relevant to today's believer. Includes charts, questions for review at the end of each chapter, and outlines of each of the five books.
