A commentary that are not only exegetical but theological as well.
Telford Work’s winsome theological exegesis of Deuteronomy will be of use to professors and students in Old Testament, Deuteronomy, Pentateuch, and theological interpretation courses. This volume, like each in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible, is designed to serve the church—through aid in preaching, teaching, study groups, and so forth—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.
"Deuteronomy summarizes the Torah and casts its long influence on the rest of the canon. Telford Work insightfully guides the reader through this important book and displays its significance to today's community of faith. I particularly appreciate his commitment to the text, unwilling to explain away some of its more difficult features. I recommend this not only to clergy and students, but also to biblical scholars who will benefit from the perspective of a theologian who is grounded in the Bible." - Tremper Longman III, Westmont College
