Exploring the Bible: Deuteronomy

Paul E BrownSKU: EXDEUT1122 ISBN: 9781846251122



Deuteronomy can seem rather formidable at first sight, but it is actually one of the most important books in the Old Testament. It consists almost entirely of words spoken by Moses to the people of Israel as they camp in the plains of Moab next to the river Jordan with the promised land awaiting them on the opposite bank. These are God's people, whom he has taken into covenant with himself. Moses urges them to go forward by faith into the land that God has set before them. He tells them God's laws and commandments for their new life in the land, weaving his instructions around the principles enshrined in the Ten Commandments. 
In this commentary, Paul Brown demonstrates the sometimes surprising relevance of the regulations of Deuteronomy for the churches and the lives of Christian people today. But such relevance is only to be expected, for God is always the same and all his Word, rightly understood, is profitable to lead us to his grace and to guide us in our living.

We are familiar with the importance of Deuteronomy in providing an understanding of the covenantal unity of the whole Bible, but the message of the book is also pastoral and evangelistic, close to the very heartbeat of the Scriptures. Deuteronomy is to the Old Testament what the book of Romans is to the New Testament. It deals with many of the central themes that rise up in the remainder of the Bible. To understand the psalms, writings and prophets you must come to grips with Deuteronomy. To know God’s greatness, his grace, redemption and love we need to study the mighty sermons of Moses in this book. Paul Brown is our inspiring guide in this commentary. He gives us access to these chapters, unerringly selecting the focus of the chief sermons, verses, paragraphs and chapters, showing their relevance for New Covenantal living. The commentary is concise, and yet it deals in some depth with key themes and topics. May many be helped by it to know and adore the God of Deuteronomy, Moses’ great Lord.
—Geoff Thomas, Pastor of Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, and well-known author
