Kaiser challenges the scholarly position that acknowledges only the diversity of the biblical canon, and asserts that the varied texts actually display a cohesive and progressive harmony. Highlighting broad themes, he illustrates Scripture's unity on subjects such as messianic promises; the people, kingdom, and law of God; and the doctrine of salvation. An excellent hermeneutic resource. 256 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.

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.
