It took me some time to work through the Old Testament student manuals as I read them while I was studying the Old Testament, but I learned so much. These books really helped me understand the Old Testament so much better than I had and as a result I gained an appreciation for the Old Testament.

Because it helped me understand how to study the Old Testament better I have been able to apply what I have learned to other scriptures, like the Book of Mormon.

Right now with Seminary in full swing, this is the only books I'm reading. The Old Testament and the manuals for it! I love the scriptures!!!

Follow-up: Just finished teaching from this and cannot believe the incredible wealth of knowledge it added to my scripture study!

Need a way to improve your Bible study? This book as a reading companion to the Bible has helped me to really dig in and find the beauty of the bible. The bible always seemed so daunting to read and dry in between the famous stories most Christians know. But this book explores the culture and depth of information and scripture the bible is. I wouldn't recommend reading the Bible without understanding this information first. This book can help with that.

This student manual is incredibly helpful in understanding the Old Testament. When archaic symbolism and terms are explained, it's so much easier to not only understand, but also to appreciate the beauty of this holy literature. Highly recommended as a companion to studying the Old Testament.

Took me 5 years to study the Old Testament with my older kids using these guides. LOVED it! I am starting the process again with the next two...but we are using a different study guides. Not because these weren't wonderful - just because I like variety. :0)

My goal is to read the Old and New Testament this year. It is taking a long time because I read the student manuals simultaneously, but the student manuals are awesome because they help me figure out what's happening in the story!
