Cliff College's Old Testament in a Week is designed to give you an overview of the entire Old Testament in just five days! As well as gaining a sense of the overall narrative and the historical contexts of the Old Testament, we'll be interacting with specific texts and considering how they fit within the whole Bible. We'll also look at how the Old Testament writings speak to our contexts today, specifically in the areas of mission, prayer, the roles of women and finding wisdom.

Previously known as the Cliff Summer School, this popular course will teach you to read the Bible in a way that connects to everyday life and illuminates what it means to follow Jesus in the 21st century. This course is ideal for ministers, preachers and teachers, as well as those who have been Christians for some time but would like to dive deeper into the Old Testament.

The short few days have had a potentially lifelong impact on my Christian journey – something I simply was not expecting – but God has worked powerfully through Cliff.

What we learned was deep and thorough and has given us impetus to go more deeply into God’s Word.

Joan, course participant

Well balanced and organised, with inspirational leadership.

I have been inspired, enthused and encouraged by the whole experience. The lectures and fellowship were wonderful.
