by Joseph L. Avery, Jr.
Many people are interested in the stories of the Old Testament, but they find the idea of reading that portion of the Bible daunting. Study the Word in a Year seeks to simplify this process and make the Bible more accessible to everyone. Avery breaks the reading down into sections and proposes a plan to read these sections over the course of a year.
To focus the reader’s attention, Avery provides a list of questions associated with each book, such as Job, Numbers, Amos, and Jeremiah. The questions each correspond to a specific verse within that book, helping readers enhance understanding as they read through each section. Study the Word in a Year offers novices a helpful introduction to the Old Testament and provides even experienced biblical readers with new insights.
