Product Description

This new series addresses key issues in the discipline of biblical theology. Each of the contributions to this series focuses on one or more of three areas: the nature and status of biblical theology, the exposition of the structure or thought of a particular biblical writer or book, and the delineation of a biblical theme across all or part of the Bible. Scholarly yet uncluttered with untransliterated Greek and Hebrew, these volumes avoid technical jargon, interact with the best of current literature, and - above all - provide clear and creative insights that help thinking Christians better understand the Bible. Though written thousands of years ago, the book of Deuteronomy is unmatched in its relevance for the affluent Western church of today. Moses' words were meant to equip God's people for life in a prosperous, pluralistic world. The cultural changes now taking place in our own social setting make the parallel between Israel and the church - and what Deuteronomy has to say - both pertinent and instructive. Whether read for its critical study of Scripture or for its practical insights into living faithfully today, this book will be a valuable resource for school, church, and home. 216 pages, paperback from Intervarsity Press.

Publisher's Description

Though written thousands of years ago, the book of Deuteronomy is unmatched in its relevance for the affluent Western church of today. Moses' words were meant to equip God's people for living godly lives in a prosperous, pluralistic world. The cultural changes now taking place in our own social setting make the parallel between Israel and the church--and what Deuteronomy has to say--both pertinent and instructive. Now Choose Life offers a significant study of Deuteronomy that recovers this Scripture's vibrant message for the contemporary Christian community. Showing the major contribution that Deuteronomy makes to our understanding of the Bible as a whole, J. Gary Millar explores Deuteronomy's ethical teaching in the light of its most important theological themes: covenant, journey, law, the nations, and human nature. His perceptive analysis reveals the power with which Deuteronomy calls God's covenant people, from ancient Israelites to modern-day Christians, to hear God's voice and do his will. Whether read for its critical study of Scripture or for its practical insights into living faithfully today, this book will be a valuable resource for school, church and home.

Author Bio

Millar is associate minister of Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland.

Editorial Reviews

"This study helps make sense of the book of Deuteronomy. . . . Dr. Millar also includes tantalizing hints about the ways in which the theology of Deuteronomy should be integrated into the entire canon. This volume will benefit not only serious students of Scripture but also preachers who want to work their way through Deuteronomy in the course of their regular ministry."
