Let's Read & Study the Old Testament!

One big goal we had in our house was that our teens would read the entire Bible cover to cover during high school, and get high school credit for doing it! So, we created 2 courses to accomplish this goal: Old Testament Survey and New Testament Survey

Old Testament Survey takes teens through the entire Old Testament in chronological order from Genesis to Malachi. Yes! You will read the entire Old Testament! Don’t worry. It’s a 2-year, 2-credit course.

Would you like your teenager to read the entire Old Testament in 2 years?

Would you like them to learn to use some Bible Study Reference Tools such as handbooks, commentaries and atlases in a fun way?

This 2-year, 2-credit Old Testament Survey course also has a fun twist: Social Media Profile Pages for Old Testament book writers, so that teens can use Bible reference tools in a fun way!

Yes, your teens will work hard with this course, but they will grow in their walk with the Lord at the same time because this is not a superficial survey of the Bible. The goal of this course is not just information, but transformation!

Read the ENTIRE Old Testament in Chronological Order
