Product Description

Learn to apply the wisdom of the Old Testament in your life with the sequential down-to-earth weekly lessons found in this well-researched volume. Gospel learners and teachers will discover how the timeless knowledge found in what Paul calls the “First Testament” can bless one’s self, family, and community. The holy scriptures are brought to life in this book through more than one hundred true stories—including historical vignettes—that illustrate the love and mercy of the Lord for His sons and daughters. Also included are many short dramatic scenes to illustrate how the Lord’s prophets and leaders were taught and blessed through the events unfolded in scriptural accounts. Similar short mini-dramas about modern life are included to explore how families—especially youth—can increase their faith and joy through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Cross references to modern scripture are used throughout the book. Study Commentary on the Old Testament is a refreshing garden of savory morsels of truth that can enrich your life.

I love this book. The format goes right alone with the Sunday School lessons. The author includes many extras, outlines the lessons, quotes and always something to ponder. Love it,
