A student, who has completed Turner's's survey of the Old Testament, stated, "Before I took the survey of the Old Testament, I thought of the Old Testament as simply providing the historical background for the New Testament. John showed us how to find the main themes of each part of the Old Testament and then how to connect those themes to the big message running through the whole Bible. I now know that the entire Old Testament makes a great contribution to the overall message of the Bible and to our Christian faith. It all fits together. I'm anxious to go on to the Survey of the New Testament."
Another student who has also completed the Old Testament survey said, "I will never read the Old Testament the same way again. I'm planning to invite friends to the Survey of the New Testament."
