The Old Testament is, understandably, often not the first port of call for Christians wanting to grow in faith. The Old Testament can seem distant and remote. However if we confine our study to the New Testament alone then we are missing out. The Old Testament has incredible stories and characters who remain well known even in today's secular society. This study shows us how much we can learn from characters, some well known like Noah and Gideon, others less well known but no less relevant like Caleb and Hezekiah. Ranging from A Single Mother(Hagar) through a Spy(Caleb) to a King(Hezekiah). The lessons we can learn from these characters are nothing if not varied.
