In this insightful commentary, Old Testament scholar Gerald Gerbrandt invites readers to struggle with the difficult passages and to humbly converse with the book's consistently hopeful themes of covenant, land, and leadership. Against the backdrop of apathy and amnesia and countless competing modern-day gods, Deuteronomy calls for the exclusive worship of the one God, with a reminder of what that God has done for us. It presents a vision for a community of brothers and sisters who treat each other with justice and generosity.
By examining the book that Jesus quoted when asked about the heart of Israel's faith, Gerbrandt unfolds for readers the richness of a book that is endlessly challenging and remarkably relevant for today.
