The Old Testament has 39 books and, of these, eleven tell the story of the Old Testament. The approach of the book is chronological, focusing on the eleven “foundational books” which give the storyline. The other 28 books are then related to these eleven books. The Abrahamic covenant is also emphasized in the study as it is the glue that holds the entire Old Testament (the Bible) together. There are maps and charts which are designed to enhance a student’s understanding of these scriptures. And there are individual subjects that are discussed, such as the names of God in the OT and the problem of God’s command to exterminate the Canaanites. The book is in two versions: a hardback color edition and a paperback black and white addition.
