This book is an excellent resource. You can easily read through it to re-familiarize yourself (or familiarize yourself for the first time) with the Big Picture of the Old Testament (OT). And it could also serve really well to help acquaint you with any particular OT book, in a broad sense, in order to show you how that book fits in with the story of the OT as a whole.The graphs, maps, and illustrations are an immense help in understanding critical areas of OT theology: tabernacle/temple worship, ancient people groups with land boundaries and respective histories, and chronologies of world empires.

I mean, for a survey this book has A LOT of valuable information!While it contains the resources for a theology student, it also somehow reads quite nicely for the layman. So I recommend it to anyone wanting to know the OT a little better.Breaking the Old Testament down into a user-friendly organization, Benware takes the student through the OT as follows:Part 1: Introduction and Overview of the OTPart 2: Foundational BooksGenesisExodus and LeviticusNumbers and DeuteronomyJoshuaJudges and Ruth1 Samuel2 Samuel1 Kings2 Kings1 and 2 ChroniclesEzra and EstherNehemiahPart 3: The Poetic BooksJobPsalmsProverbsEcclesiastesSong of SolomonLamentationsPart 4: The Prophetic BooksProphecies During the Divided KingdomObadiahJoelJonahAmosHoseaIsaiahMicahProphecies During the Single KingdomNahumZephaniahJeremiahHabakkukProphecies During the ExileDanielEzekielProphecies After the ExileHaggaiZechariahMalachiWhen all is said and done, if you dont know your OT and/or you want a basic understanding of how it fits together and what the Big Picture of it is - this is a great book.(265 pages, but the book is really little, and it reads fast!)May the Lord Christ bless you in your studies!
