Reading Deuteronomy can be like standing before Israel with Moses, hearing him address us as a future generation of the covenant people of God. Though we may have passed over the Jordan into the good land, we still struggle with temptations and opposition.

Raymond Brown's The Message of Deuteronomy guides Christians to hear and appreciate the timeless relevance of this message from the Plains of Moab. His compilation of impertant historical and biblican background complements his even-handed, penetrating commentary without overwhelming his readable style. A great gift for the experienced and the beginning Bible reader.
