Product Description

In Deuteronomy Daniel Block highlights the unity between the God depicted in Deuteronomy and Jesus Christ. He accomplishes this by examining the book--as all volumes in this series do--from a historical, theological, and practical lens.

Arranged as a series of sermons, the book of Deuteronomy represents the final major segment of the biography of Moses. The sermons review events described in earlier books and challenges Israel to faithful living in the future.

The theological significance of Deuteronomy cannot be overestimated. Few books in the Bible proclaim such a relevant word of grace and gospel to the church today. At its heart, Deuteronomy records the covenantal relationship between God and his people. God graciously has chosen Israel as his covenant partner and has demonstrated his covenantal commitment to them. Moses challenges the Israelites to respond by declaring that Yahweh alone is their God and by demonstrating unwavering loyalty and total love for him through obedience.

This commentary is very accessible. Those with formal theological training will find it compelling, while others will find it challenging but digestible. It is excellent for a full-rounded study of Scripture from both a knowledge stand point and for devotional appreciation.

Publisher's Description

The NIV Application Commentary helps you communicate and apply biblical text effectively in today's context.

To bring the ancient messages of the Bible into today's world, each passage is treated in three sections:

  • Original Meaning. Concise exegesis to help readers understand the original meaning of the biblical text in its historical, literary, and cultural context.
  • Bridging Contexts. A bridge between the world of the Bible and the world of today, built by discerning what is timeless in the timely pages of the Bible.
  • Contemporary Significance. This section identifies comparable situations to those faced in the Bible and explores relevant application of the biblical messages. The author alerts the readers of problems they may encounter when seeking to apply the passage and helps them think through the issues involved.

Editorial Reviews

“The NIV Application Commentary series doesn’t fool around: It gets right down to business, bringing this ancient and powerful Word of God into the present so that it can be heard and delivered with all the freshness of a new day, with all the immediacy of a friend’s embrace.” -- Eugene Peterson

“This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible’s timeless message speak to this generation.” -- Billy Graham

“The NIV Application Commentary is a magnificent gift to the church!” -- Dr. R. Kent Hughes, Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

“If you want to avoid hanging applicational elephants from interpretational threads, then the NIV Application Commentary is for you! This series excels at both original meaning and contemporary significance. I support it one hundred percent.” -- Howard G. Hendricks, Dallas Theological Seminary

“This is the pulpit commentary for the 21st Century” -- George K. Brushaber, President, Bethel College & Seminary

“The NIV Application Commentary dares to go where few scholars have gone before---into the real world of biblical application faced by pastor and teachers every day. This is everything a good commentary series should be.” -- Leith Anderson, Pastor, Wooddale Church

“Here at last is a commentary which is not only academically well informed but which helps that commentary reader hear God’s Word and consider its implications; scholarship in service of the Church.” -- Arthur Rowe, Spurgeons College

“It takes more than interpretation of God's Word to change lives, it takes application. Application is the bottom line in preaching and teaching. Without it, we’ve missed the point of the Bible. The NIV Application Commentary is an outstanding resource for pastors and anyone else who is serious about developing ‘doers of the Word.’” -- Rick Warren, Pastor, Saddleback Valley Community Church

“The NIV Application Commentary series promises to be of great service to all who preach and teach the Word of God.” -- J. I. Packer, Regent College

“At a time when many pastors are deeply in need of inspiration and encouragement, these volumes… would be a good investment for congregations, even if it means adding a line to the annual budget.” -- Christianity Today

“The NIV Application Commentary builds bridges that make the Bible come alive with meaning for contemporary life--and the series do so concisely, clearly, and accurately. No wasted words or academic detours--just solid help and practical truth.” -- Warren W. Weirsbe

“The NIV Application Commentary series helps pastors and other Bible teachers with one of the most neglected elements of good preaching---accurate, useful application. Most commentaries tell you a few things that are helpful and much that you do not need to know. By dealing with the original meaning and contemporary significance of each passage, the NIV Application Commentary series promises to be helpful all the way around.” -- Dr. James Montgomery Boice, Tenth Presbyterian Church

“It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary series will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.” -- Charles F. Stanley, Pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta

“The NIV Application Commentary meets the urgent need for an exhaustive and authoritative commentary based on the New International Version. This series will soon be found in libraries and studies throughout the entire evangelical community.” -- Dr. James Kennedy, PhD, Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

“The NIV Application Commentary series will be a great help for readers who want to understand what the Bible means, how it applies, and what they should do in response.” -- Stuart Briscoe, Pastor, Elmbrook Church
