This new volume in the freshly redesigned Preaching the Word series makes the message of Deuteronomy accessible and applicable to Christians today. According to Ajith Fernando, this often-neglected book of the Old Testament holds powerful relevance for Christians grappling with the issue of obeying God in a world that promotes alternative ways of life. Deuteronomy centers around God's love for Israel and the love he asks for in return; it is the love of God then that is presented as a primary motivation for obedience.


Fernando's insightful exposition is rich with anecdotes from his thirty-five years of ministry to first-generation Christians in Sri Lanka. Written by a pastor for pastors and their people, this book offers concrete and helpful examples of how the truths contained in Deuteronomy can be applied today. While our culture and the world of the Bible might seem vastly different, even the detailed laws of the Old Testament hold relevance as they continue to reflect the mind and heart of God.


-Publisher


The book of Deuteronomy is a call to obedience—the proper response to God’s faithfulness and love. Consisting primarily of speeches that Moses gave to the Israelites shortly before they entered the Promised Land, Moses’ words proclaimed God’s covenant faithfulness in hopes of motivating the Israelites to obey God despite the coming temptation to conform to the Canaanite culture.


The challenges they faced then are remarkably parallel to those facing Christians today as we grapple with the issue of obedience in a world that offers other attractive ways of life. We wonder: How can we be faithful to God? And how do we help our children and the people we lead to be faithful? This book tells us how Moses tackled these challenges and, as Paul confirms in the New Testament, Deuteronomy serves “as an example…written down for our instruction” (1 Cor. 10:11).


Ajith Fernando unpacks the relevance of Deuteronomy and captivates us with rich anecdotes from his thirty-five years of ministry to first-generation Christians in Sri Lanka. He offers concrete examples of how the truths contained in Deuteronomy can be applied, and he teaches us that obedience is the necessary response to the God who loves and saves us.
