Product Description

Deuteronomy is a book 'on the boundary': it addresses the possibilities of new life 'beyond the Jordan' as dependent on Israel's keeping of the law and acknowledgement of Yahweh's supremacy. In Deuteronomy [TOTC], Edward Woods expounds the all-encompassing vision of the book of Deuteronomy for the people of Israel. He shows how the Israelites were exhorted to make its words the interpreter of their life story within the land and within God's grand story of redemption.

About the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC] series
The Tyndale Old Testament Commentary [TOTC] series is designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says, and also what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original purpose, and setting. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes, while also commenting on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The commentary in these volumes is structured under three headings: 1) Context; 2) Comment; 3) Meaning. Ultimately, the goal of these commentaries is to make the meaning of the Bible as plain and straightforward as could reasonably be expected.

Key Points:
  • Audience: Pastors, Students, Laity
  • Type: Non-Technical Commentary, written by scholars for general audience
  • Perspective: Conservative to Moderate Evangelical
  • Language: Greek and Hebrew are helpful but not necessary to understand these commentaries.

Publisher's Description

A dramatic address delivered on the verge of Israel’s entry into the land of Canaan, Deuteronomy has been described as a book "on the boundary." Ted Woods expounds its all-encompassing vision and shows how the Israelites were exhorted to make its words the interpreter of their life's story within the land "beyond the Jordan." This completely new volume replaces the previous editon of Deuteronomy in the Tyndale Commentary series written by J. A. Thompson.

    Here is another replacement volume in the venerable Tyndale Commentary series. This volume replaces the 1974 volume by Thompson and is superior to it. This bodes well for the Tyndale series holding its high place among commentaries.

    Woods gives a lengthy, for this type series at least, Introduction. My favorite part is that the authors love for Deuteronomy shines throughout. These type make the best commentary reading. His case for Deuteronomy being pivotal is well done and convincing. His discussion on authorship touches the scholarly bases without falling for their excesses.

    His description of literary features is illuminating. His comparison to law codes may seem a little overdone, but too many scholars discuss it for him not to mention it. His expansion of comparing Deuteronomy, and particularly the Ten Commandments in Deuteronomy, to the rest of the Pentateuch was helpful. Finally, his discussion of theology was the best part of the Introduction. It really helped put Deuteronomy in perspective.

    The Commentary proper was helpful, thoughtful, and never trite. This will be a fine volume to consult for years to come. 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.

    Edward J Woods has produced an excellent mid-level commentary on Deuteronomy. This book explains the meaning of Deuteronomy in a very understandable way. Each passage of the text is dealt with in three sections: context, comment, and meaning. I found this approach very helpful. The 35 page introduction engages with the latest developments in scholarship. This book is a valuable addition to my library.
