Recovering the Unity of the Bible: One Continuous Story, Plan and Purpose (By Walter C. Kaiser Jr.)
Much biblical scholarship in the last half-century has emphasized the Bible's diversity and discontinuity rather than seeking any possible strands of harmony and unity. Many scholars disown any other goal for biblical theology that acknowledging the Bible's diversity, and they are unwilling to handle its wide spectrum of materials, genres, and topics in a search for unity and a center to Scripture.
Recovering the Unity of the Bible challenges this common scholarly posture to see mostly diversity throughout the biblical canon. Author of The Promise-Plan of God, Walter C. Kaiser points 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 different texts.
