I have a couple of Old Testament survey books and have seen many but this is definitely the best one of them all. Dr. Geisler approaches the Old Testament from a uniquely Christ-centered point of view. The whole ouline of his survey is based on Christ the substance of the OT shadows. He divides the OT in mainly 4 parts, the books of the Law: The foundation for Christ. The books of History: The preparation for Christ. The Books of Poetry: THe aspiration for Christ and the books of Prophecy the expectation of Christ. He follows the same excellent system of studying each book starting with the author (here he uses his excellent apologetics skills), then when they were written, to whom and also the historical, doctrinal and Christological purpose of the book. Thereafter he divides the book into main parts and begin his systematic survey of it. I highly recommend this book to any Bible student and also to the average Christian seeking to obtain a good understanding of the OT and it's message for us today.
