My thoughts:
The Old Testament Handbook seems like a great book to help study the Old Testament. I've only been able to flip through most of it and slowly read the section/chapter on Isaiah (I'm currently reading that book, so thought it was a good place to start with this handbook). It's been really enjoyable and I can see myself using this handbook for the rest of the OT.

There are so many cool features to this handbook and I want to highlight some of them:  
~Introductions for the books of the OT - which contain information on the author, background, message and purpose, summary, and structure.
~Outlines for the books, which I find helpful to give you a quick look at what happens in each book.
~Timelines and Charts, which I find helpful for me to visualize things better and keep things in order.
~Word Study - I love this section of each book. It goes in-depth on a few Hebrew words from the book. It is interesting to learn the meaning to certain words. I think this might be one of my favorite sections of the handbook.

It seems to be well made with a foil-stamped cloth cover. It lays flat and has a ribbon which makes it easy to keep your spot.

All in all, I'm really enjoying this handbook so far. I'm excited about the New Testament Handbook, which looks like it will be available Spring 2024. I recommend this if you are looking for an easy to read/follow handbook to help with studying the Old Testament.
