The Guidebook has several unique features not usually found in a survey book:
* Under the Glass section for each book with meanings of Biblical names and selected word studies or comments.
* A Slice of The Life series treating different aspects of Bible life such as:
Life in Ur
Life in the Tent
Life in Bondage
Life in the Desert
Life in Canaan
Life in Captivity
Life at the Sanctuary
Life in the Home
* Wrap-Up section for each book of the Bible with practical lessons applied
* Finding Christ section for each book of the Bible
* Outlines in abundance
The Guidebook has been in use since the 2009 Fall semester in several Bible colleges as a textbook for Old Testament Survey. The old version of the book (half the size) has gone to over 25 countries for use in an integrated study course over the past five years.
An individual reading through the books of the Old Testament can find good help from the Guidebook, and if he wanted an even deeper learning experience, he could utilize the Workbook. The integrated study course designed for institutes and church study groups is built on the Guidebook along with the Workbook, DVD Lectures Library and Supervisor’s Manual.
