Old Testament Survey


Riverside 2001

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Amazing as it may be, the things written in the Old Testament really happened and they “were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope,” Rom 15:4. “They are our examples,” I Cor. 10:6, and “they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come, I Cor. 10:11. In the Old Testament, God gives us a record of His dealings in works and words with His Old Covenant people, Israel, a record which reveals to us the divine “do’s” and “don’ts” of daily living. If we correctly interpret the history found in the Old Testament, we will learn that God chastens disobedience and that He rewards obedience.

In this book, Professor Gingrich takes his readers step by step, period by period, through the Old Testament. After carefully reading and studying this book, the reader will be able to think his way through the Old Testament from the creation of Adam to the days of Malachi.
