Big Picture View: Old Testament Surveys & Theologies

August 23rd, 2019

Grasping the Big Picture of the Bible is crucial to sound exegesis.  We want to challenge listeners to place yearly emphasis on reading a survey of the Bible (be it an Old Testament Survey, New Testament Survey, or Bible Survey) to not only aid in building their own knowledge of the Bible but to also help in teaching others the Bible's message.   Today's episode focuses exclusively on Old Testament surveys and does so by addressing four categories of books:  Introductory Surveys, Intermediate Surveys, Old Testament Theologies, and Theologies of Individual Books of the Old Testament.  Here is the list of titles discussed in today's episode:
