Fr. Baker's Theology of the Old Testament brings the student along a tour of the books of the Old Testament in the order they are found in the Bible.  From Creation and the early formation of Judaism to the Minor Prophets and the preservation of the Covenant, Fr. Baker glides through the colorful history of God's Chosen people.  His video lectures identify the recurring themes of promises, sin, forgiveness, and fulfillment, and the overall story of God's love for his people.  The videos alone provide a useful review of the subject, but they can also be enhanced by a study of the additional materials included on this site.
