A dramatic address delivered on the verge of Israel's entry into the land of Canaan, Deuteronomy has been described as a book "on the boundary." Edward J. Woods expounds its all-encompassing vision and shows how the Israelites were exhorted to make its words the interpreter of their life's story within the land "beyond the Jordan."
