Deuteronomy, whose name is derived from the Greek word for "second law," is one of the most influential books of the Bible. As a narration of the "second" giving of the law by Moses before Israel enters the Promised Land, Deuteronomy provides the theological vision for Joshua, Judges, 1 & 2 Kings and canonically is the hinge that joins the Torah to these six books of Deuteronomistic History.
In this NBBC, Stephen Green calls attention to Deuteronomy's importance, adeptly handling such key passages as the Decalogue, the Shema, and the song of Moses. He highlights the importance of Deuteronomy for the Christian faith, observing Jesus' dependence on it for teaching on faith, love, obedience, and so on. Expertly crafted, this commentary is an essential resouce for anyone wanting a deeper understanding of the Old and New Testaments and the foundational ideas of Christianity.
