In this volume, 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.

“In his Dialog with Trypho, Justin Martyr concluded, ‘I am entirely convinced that no Scripture can contradict another, … [for] I would admit rather that I do not understand what it says [should a contradiction be presented].’” (Page 13)

“‘The question of the unity of the Bible’s message is one that will never be satisfactorily solved, though it is one which every generation of Christians must seek to solve. We are continually impelled to search for the answer because the unity of the Church’s message to the world is at stake.’” (Page 11)

“Some have thoughtfully observed that the reason there is a scarcity of evidence in the earlier periods for the unity of Scripture is because the church faced few challenges to its unity prior to the time of the Enlightenment. Only then did numerous alleged contradictions to Scripture begin to appear.” (Page 14)

“The case for the unity of the Bible, then, rests on two main theses: (1) the self-claims of the Bible and (2) the message of Scripture.” (Page 24)

“This book has the power to grip a person and bring changes in his or her life if followed” (Page 23)
