a good primer on old testament biblical theology

This book is part of the "Toward" series that Kaiser has written. He takes somewhat of a middle road between dispensationalism and covenant theology by his promise-fulfillment method. The book has 3 parts: an overview of the history of OT theology, an overview of the "promise" concept in OT theology and thirdly an overview of how to apply the OT today. Basically this book would make an excellent textbook for an introduction to Old Testament biblical theology. One weakness is his strange insistence that Evangelicals must use higher-criticism (pg. 75), albeit in a modified way. Also, his insistence that "promise" is the dominant over-arching theme of the OT is somewhat weak as well. Though somewhat dated in the area of current trends in OT biblical theology, it is an excellent exposure to important questions and issues.
