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."

This completely new volume replaces the previous editon of Deuteronomy in the Tyndale Commentary series written by J. A. Thompson.
