"Von Rad was born in Nuremburg, Germany, and was educated at the Universities of Erlangen and Tübingen. Subsequently he held chairs at Jena, Göttingen and Heidelberg. He is remembered as an important scholar of the Old Testament. Among his books were works on the origin of the Book of Deuteronomy, on the Hexateuch and on the theology of the Old Testament. His analyses were largely based on form-critical study (the study of different forms of narrative) and have been highly influential both in Germany and in the English-speaking world."

The Promise-Plan of God by Walter C. KaiserWhat 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? 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.

The Story Retold by G. K. Beale; Benjamin L. GladdNew Testament introductions fall into two categories: those that emphasize the history behind the text through discussions of authorship, dating, and audience, and those that explore the content of the text itself. Few introductions weave the Old Testament into their discussions, and fewer still rely on the grand narrative of the Old Testament. But the New Testament was not written within a vacuum. Rather, it stands in continuity with the Old Testament. Israel's story is the church's story.In The Story Retold, G. K. Beale and Benjamin L. Gladd explore each New Testament book in light of the broad history of redemption, emphasizing the biblical-theological themes of each New Testament book. Their distinctive approach encourages readers to read the New Testament in light of the Old, not as a new story but as a story retold.

Old Testament Theologies
An Old Testament Theology by Charles Yu (As told to); Bruce K. Waltke; WaltkeThe Old Testament is more than a religious history of the nation of Israel. It is more than a portrait gallery of heroes of the faith. It is even more than a theological and prophetic backdrop to the New Testament. Through careful study, Waltke shows that the unifying theme of the Old Testament is the "breaking in of the kingdom of God." This theme helps the reader better understand not only the Old Testament, but also the New Testament, the continuity of the entire Bible, and ultimately, God himself.

This provides a context that attends to pluralism in every dimension of the interpretive process and suggests links to the plurality of voices of our time.
