This authoritative guide opens with an introduction to Deuteronomy, looking especially at background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. The author's own translation from the original Hebrew forms the basis of the commentary proper. Each NICOT volume aims to help us hear God's word as clearly as possible. Craigie's verse-by-verse comments nicely balance in-depth discussions of technical matters with exposition of the biblical writer's theology and its implications for the life of faith today. A select bibliography also points readers to resources for their own study. "Peter Craigies exposition of Deuteronomy is full, accurate and illuminating."? - F. F. Bruce.
