A one stop recourse for Old Testament
5 stars By Luke Harvest alumni , Jun 09 2017
I read  this in Bible college  as a  textbook, and found this very useful in our overview for the entire Old Testament. it was deep in information, but it was very easy to understand, it was helpful in its layout, and it has full colour pages and pictures, and recommended go to recourses for further study. This is perfect for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of God's story!! the Old Testament!!
