In this new book Walt Kaiser makes the case for the unity of the Bible. The theological unity of the Bible celebrates the diversity of the Bible, but does so with the conviction that even though that unity can be tested historically, ethically, and otherwise, it has not detracted from the central case for the theological harmony that is found in the text. This has been the general conclusion of two millennia of Judo-Christian exegesis.
Recovering the Unity of the Bible helps readers grasp the Bible's progressive witness on various theological concepts. Walter C. Kaiser challenges the common scholarly posture that sees mostly diversity throughout the biblical canon, pointing instead to the way several Biblical themes substantially support the case for unity, including: - Messianic Promises - The People of God - The Law of God - The Doctrine of Salvation - The Mission of the Old Testament Recovering the Unity of the Bible exhibits sound techniques for students, pastors, and Bible teachers who seek to make sense of the Bible's many and different texts.
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.
