Perhaps that sounds creepy. Let me clarify. Preston won’t be in your living room, he will be on your computer or tablet. The whole process will be simple, affordable, and effective. Here’s how.
Readers who have had any exposure to Preston’s writing are familiar with his grasp of the Bible. I have always been particularly impressed with his ability to teach the Old Testament in a powerful, engaging, and clear manner. While his book Fight is about violence, Preston’s overview of the Old Testament’s teaching on the issue was hugely beneficial for me in simply understanding what the Old Testament is all about. The same is true of his book Charis, which is about Grace in the Old Testament. He knows these ancient books well, and he knows how to bring them to life.
You may or may not know that Preston has taught through the entire Old Testament in three Silo courses:
- Old Testament Overview 1 – The Pentateuch
- Old Testament Overview 2 – The Historical Books
- Old Testament Overview 3 – The Poetic & Prophetic Books
The Silo format means that each of these courses consists of roughly 15 sessions, and each session consists of a 5-7 minute video and some discussion questions. This is a great format for getting an overview of something as complicated and important as the Old Testament.
Normally Silo courses are $25 each, but if you use the coupon code “abraham” you can take 40% off each of these courses (offer expires December 31, 2014). This means you can cover the Old Testament in roughly 45 five-minute sessions for only $45. Or you can study these courses with a group for even less.
If you’d like to get a feel for what these three courses are like, the first two videos for each course are embedded below. If you’re ready to go, sign up for the first course here. And if you have any questions, let us know.
