From the Back Cover
Discover a new panorama of the Old Testament as Walter Kaiser explores the theology that grew and developed from Genesis to Malachi. Kaiser bares the bedrock of our faith by examining what the texts themselves say without the superimposition of philosophies, pre-suppositions, or theological systems. Instead he shows the actual theological world that each writer inhabited and how they combined their theological inheritance from earlier writers and prophets with the new and sometimes surprising revelation they received for application to the circumstances and needs of their own epoch. This is a book with theological meat that should have a place in the library of every serious Bible student, seminarian and pastor. This book is the cornerstone for developing an exegesis, an exposition, a proclamation and a systematic theology. Here are the issues, the conflicts and the possibility of a real beginning for a genuine biblical theology. Dr. Kaiser tests his approach by chronologically discussing the texts from each of the Old Testament eras from creation to the postexilic period. A special section examines the connections between the Old and New Testament theology.
