Walter Kaiser questions the notion that the New Testament represents a deviation from God's supposed intention to save only the Israelites. He argues that--contrary to popular opinion--the older Testament does not reinforce an exclusive redemptive plan. Instead, it emphasizes a common human condition and God's original and continuing concern for all humanity. Kaiser shows that the Israelites' mission was always to actively spread to gentiles the Good News of the promised Messiah. This new edition adds two new chapters, freshens material throughout, expands the bibliography, and includes study questions.
Walter C. Kaiser, Ph.D., is the President of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and the Colman M. Mockler distinguished Professor of Old Testament. He was previously the Academic Dean and Vice President of Education, as well as Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL.
Dr. Kaiser has written many books including, The Old Testament in Contemporary Preaching, Classical Evangelical Essays in Old Testament Interpretation, Toward an Old Testament Theology, A Biblical Approach to Personal Suffering, Ecclesiastes: Total Life, Toward an Exegetical Theology, Biblical Exegesis for Preaching and Teaching, Hard Sayings of the Old Testament and The Messiah in the Old Testament: a History of Israel.
