When it comes to discussions related to the composition and interpretation of the books in the Old Testament, few other books are more contested than Deuteronomy. Even among evangelicals, the differences in thoughts and opinions can be greatly varied. What is found in Sepher Torath Mosheh is a collection of essays on Deuteronomy that take a comprehensive look at its origin, composition, ideology, ethic, and connection to other biblical books. These essays were originally presented at a special colloquium at Wheaton College in the fall of 2015 in hopes of providing a space where evangelicals could discuss these differences and provide a glimpse into the current state of evangelical scholarship in relation to the book of Deuteronomy. This is an excellent resource for graduate students and professors specializing in Hebrew or the Old Testament.

In few areas of critical Old Testament research is the chasm between evangelical and mainstream scholarship as broad as in discussions of the book of Deuteronomy. The issues relate not only to the provenance of the book, but also to its origin and composition, its ideology, its ethic, and its relationship to other biblical books. Evangelicals differ in their responses to historical-critical scholarship. Some avoid it as much as possible; others consider neither critical methodologies nor the results of critical scholarship to be threatening to their evangelical convictions.
The essays in Sepher Torath Mosheh consist of invited papers that were presented at a special colloquium on the book of Deuteronomy at Wheaton College in the fall of 2015. Their purpose is to explore historical, literary, theological, and ethical issues at the heart of the tensions evangelicals feel with regard to mainstream scholarship on Deuteronomy. Although the contributors represent a broad spectrum of theological and hermeneutical perspectives within evangelicalism, they all subscribe to the statement on Scripture that unites the fellows of the Institute for Biblical Research: belief in "the unique divine inspiration, integrity, and authority of the Bible."
