Item description for The Promise-Plan of God: A Biblical Theology of the Old and New Testaments by Walter C. Kaiser Jr...
Overview Exploring the difficulty in determining the true nature, method, scope, and motivation for biblical theology, this book proposes the promise of God as the center of Old and New Testament theology and applies the solution to each of its eras.
Publishers Description What is the central theme of the Bible? Given the diversity of authorship, genre, and context of the Bible s various books, is it even possible to answer such a question? Or in trying to do so, is an external grid being unnaturally superimposed on the biblical text? These are difficult questions that the discipline of biblical theology has struggled to answer. In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of his classic Toward an Old Testament Theology, Walter Kaiser offers a solution to these unresolved issues. He proposes that there is indeed a unifying center to the theology and message of the Bible that is indicated and affirmed by Scripture itself. That center is the promise of God. It is one all-encompassing promise of life through the Messiah that winds itself throughout salvation history in both the Old and New Testaments, giving cohesiveness and unity to the various parts of Scripture. After laying out his proposal, Kaiser works chronologically through the books of both testaments, demonstrating how the promise is seen throughout, how the various sub-themes of each book relate to the promise, and how God s plan to fulfill the promise progressively unfolds. Here is a rich and illuminating biblical theology that will stir the emotion and the intellect."

Kaiser's Biblical Theology at its Best Feb 19, 2009
Here is Kaiser at his best as he develops his previous book Toward an Old Testament Theology to include the New Testament.
Kaiser shows the balance in this biblical theology of the Old and New Testaments between over-spiritualizing the Old Testament promises to Israel and yet caring for the continuity between the testaments.
There is continuity and discontinuity as the promise-plan of God is developed yet Kaiser keeps the one people of God in focus with its two aspects.
Kaiser will challenge your thinking by his "promise-theology."
