The Old Testament is as long as all the other standard works combined.
Rather than discuss every verse and person in this standard work,
the authors have concentrated on two objectives: first, providing an
accurate, engaging, and inspiring commentary; and second, helping the
reader see the coming of Jesus Christ in the verses of the Old Testament.
These two volumes also include a concise explanation of every significant
event and doctrine recorded by the ancient patriarchs, prophets, and
poets. It also includes numerous photos, paintings, maps, and charts,
and discusses important archaeological discoveries. Certain key topics
are "featured sections"-including the names of God, the ten plagues of
Egypt, the Passover, sacrificial offerings and feasts and festivals under the
law of Moses, how to understand Isaiah, prophecies of the Messiah, and
the lives of various Old Testament figures as types and shadows of Christ.
