Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Trustworthy!June 30, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Eugene Merrill is a name you can trust. Without fail, his writings are clear, conservative, and helpful. This title is on one of the most important books in the OT. Jesus often quoting Deuteronomy proves that fact. Fortunately, this volume is in the economical, pastor-friendly New American Commentary (NAC) series that many pastors like me absolutely love.
Merrill begins the Introduction by explaining the meaning of the title, and then slides into date and authorship. Critics have been especially abusive to Deuteronomy, so its nice to have a strong case made for those of us who accept the Bible as Gods Word without reservation. He succinctly describes the historical background for us too. He analyzes structure to good effect, briefly describing the path of sometimes wobbly scholarship before bringing us back to good sense. He sees no credible evidence to question the canonicity of Deuteronomy. After providing an outline, he gives us what he calls analysis of the contents of the book. It is well done. He ends the Introduction with a fine overview of the theology of Deuteronomy.
The commentary itself is superb and much more trustworthy than those of many other series. Every passage I perused gave the kind of help I like to receive.
This book is an excellent addition for every pastor or teacher. I highly recommend it.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
