The Old Testament was written about mankind before the Redemption. It seems like the people then were more bold and God responded to them in a strong way.
I think reading should be for when you are looking for a specific detail or piece of information. Otherwise, you might just go crazy looking everywhere for answers. Better to keep peace in your soul, love truth, and be open to where it takes you. Maybe for some that DOES include thinking through the atheistic mindset. But I can not see how anyone can honestly, peacefully, lovingly, keep that view of life and eternity.
