Lessons From the Old Testament
This book is a survey of the Old Testament from the Creation through the life of Joseph. Teachers of teenage and adult Bible classes will appreciate the twenty-eight well organized and thought provoking lesson plans in this volume. Topics include: the fall and God's promise of redemption, the flood and restoration, the dilemma of God's justice, the faith of Abraham, the choice between Salem and Sodom, the life of Jacob, and much more.
The lessons are deep enough to hold the interest of those who are already familiar with the Bible, yet simple enough for those who are new to the Bible to understand. In addition, the lessons are practical. They emphasize principles which students can apply to their lives. Examples of applications are: recognizing and avoiding sin, overcoming environment, choosing friends and associates, choosing a mate, and restoring broken relationships.
The author also includes an essay on the art of teaching. In it he discusses the purpose of teaching and shares a simple acronym to help teachers remember the elements which make a class effective.
Other volumes in this series explore the rest of the Old Testament period. Titles include:
Exodus and Wanderings
Conquest and Judges
The United Monarchy
