In his perceptive commentary, David F. Payne helps readers to see the importance of this pivotal biblical book and guides them in applying its message to today’s world. Deuteronomy consists of three major addresses to the people, in which Moses repeats the laws already set forth. Why, then, is Deuteronomy necessary with its repeat of the law and covenant? “The internal logic of Deuteronomy” writes Payne, “provides one answer to this question: Israel’s forthcoming entry into the land would provide a dramatic break with the past, as a wandering people became a settled nation, with an entirely different way of life. So Israel’s great leader, Moses, takes great pains to make sure that Israel will be faithful to her God-given calling to law and covenant, and will remember her formative past”. Readers then and now in the clear and practical commentary are called to renew their covenant with their God...useful, reliable and eminently readable.
