This book outlines a reading program which will take you through the history of Israel by reading through the historical books from Genesis to Nehemiah chronologically. Old testament history is divided into 196 Bible readings (approximately 1 chapter each) along with suggestions of how to cover the material and keep it interesting. For each reading there are a series of questions to help you focus on the significant details. There are also a number of background notes and some suggestions for further study. This book won't answer all your questions, but it will give you a well-thought out program of reading and studying the history of Israel. This is intended as a first history course for the early elementary grades, though some parents use it with their middle- and high-school students.
