Surveys are an overview of a "topic." The most common surveys are those of the Old and New Testaments. These cover each book discussing the contents of the book. If you were to attend seminary, you would also probably take an "Introduction" course to the two Testaments as well. Such a course discusses topics such as authorship, textual issues, and the like.

We are pleased to offer several survey courses used in teaching church groups.
