Product Description

A mid-level discussion of the most pressing issues in Deuteronomy in contemporary scholarship.

While many excellent resources are available on Deuteronomy, few bridge the gap between introductory and specialized works. Interpreting Deuteronomy contributes to that need: it assumes some foundational knowledge and guides readers through current issues and approaches. Here is evangelical scholarship that will inform, stimulate and reward diligent teachers and preachers of the Old Testament.

The book of Deuteronomy has been immensely influential, not least within the Old Testament itself. It is found among the most frequently occurring manuscripts at Qumran, and it is also one of the Old Testament books most frequently cited in the New Testament. In Matthew's Gospel, it is Deuteronomy which Jesus cites in rejecting temptation.

As with so many other Old Testament books, study of Deuteronomy is in the midst of significant change. While for many scholars the Documentary Hypothesis has continued to provide a framework for interpretation, it no longer commands the status of an "assured result." Instead, fresh approaches have been developed, engendering their own debates. Recent as well as older study affirms that Deuteronomy represents a distinctive theological voice within the Pentateuch.

Publisher's Description

The book of Deuteronomy has been immensely influential, not least within the Old Testament itself.

Instead, fresh approaches have been developed, engendering their own debates. Recent as well as older study affirms that Deuteronomy represents a distinctive theological voice within the Pentateuch. While many excellent resources are now available, these tend to be either introductory or highly specialized; there are fewer that bridge the gap between the two. This volume contributes to that need: it assumes some foundational knowledge and guides readers through current issues and approaches. Here is evangelical scholarship that will inform, stimulate and reward diligent teachers and preachers of the Old Testament. The contributors are Paul Barker, Jenny Corcoran, David G.

Editorial Reviews

"Firth and Johnston are to be commended, first of all, for assembling these excellent essays on Deuteronomy, a book that is so important for OT theology. . . . This anthology is a worthy read, and is commended especially to students of arguably the most theologically important book of the OT, the last of the five books of the Torah."
