Overview

The book of Deuteronomy forms the foundation for much of the Old and New Testaments. It provides an overview of the exodus experience, reminding the Israelites that the Lord is the one who formed them, brought them out of Egypt, and provided them with the Promised Land. In this commentary J. Edward Owens highlights the key motifs and themes in this book of instruction: land, the theologies of love, remembering/forgetting, time, retribution, the Divine Name, the Lord as warrior, the Ten Commandments, and the great Shema. Through the story of the Israelites, Deuteronomy reminds us that we are a communal people who are called to remember always the love of the Lord.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

It is a valuable introduction to the complex matters involved in the Book of Deuteronomy. It is engaging, non-technical, clearly organized and attentive to the beginning student. The commentary can serve as an introductory textbook for teachers, students and pastoral ministers.
J. L. Manzo, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, St. John's Seminary

With clarity and skill, Edward Owens unpacks the book of Deuteronomy and mines the historical depth and rhetorical artistry of an ancient text. Owens’ lucid analysis offers readers many new and rich insights and helps us to see how this biblical text can have a positive and transformative effect on life today.
