By Jack R. Lundbom

This ebook on Deuteronomy seeks to put sooner than a large viewers of scholars and lay readers one of many vital books one of the first 5 books (together referred to as the Pentateuch) within the Hebrew Bible or previous testomony. It lifts up significant issues within the booklet, some of the most popular being Moses as prophet par excellence. Deuteronomy is the outdated Testament's significant e-book on legislations and covenant, re-presenting the 10 Commandments given to Israel at Mount Horeb (also referred to as Sinai). however the e-book is extra involved to offer the Deuteronomic Code (in chapters 12-26) taught to Israel within the plains of Moab, prior to Moses dies and Israel is to move the Jordan River into Canaan. the author of Deuteronomy isn't really Moses, as acknowledged within the Jewish Talmud, yet probably a Levitical priest within the past due 8th or early 7th century BC who assumes the personality of Moses in Judahite worship. previous poems, the music of Moses (32:1-43) and the Blessing of Moses (chapter 33), seem in a last complement to the e-book, which then closes with an account of Moses's demise and burial in Moab.

"Lundbom has written a thick yet available advent to Deuteronomy that would make an outstanding source for starting scholars and basic readers. Condensing the technical concerns in his past statement to chapters on particular thematic concerns, he demonstrates how and why Deuteronomy's 'preached legislation' has formed the Judeo-Christian culture for over millennia."
--Samuel E. Balentine, Professor of previous testomony, Director of Graduate reviews, Union Presbyterian Seminary, Richmond, VA

"Like a talented physician, Dr. Lundbom makes use of his big wisdom of Deuteronomy to slice right into a e-book that's imprecise for lots of sleek readers yet that could be a key witness to God's covenant faithfulness to Israel. Delving into the historical past of Deuteronomy's concept in addition to its later use, specifically within the Gospel of John, in nontechnical and transparent language he allows the reader to determine how Deuteronomy can tell the lives of believers today."
--Walter F. Taylor Jr., PhD, Ernest W. and Edith S. Ogram Professor of latest testomony Studies (Retired), Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, OH
