Interpreting Deuteronomy from a conservative perspective, Peter C. Craigie highlights the centrality of the book'stheme of a covenant commitment while also taking greatcare to demonstrate how Deuteronomyis a book with considerable contemporaryrelevance. He uses resources of recent research in Old Testament studies to effectively bridge the gap of more than three thousand years that separatesthe modern reader from the events described in Deuteronomy, this clarifying the primary message of the text for the modern reader.
Craigie's study on the Book of Deuteronomy is part of The New International Commentary on the Old Testament. Like its companion series on the New Testament, this commentary devotes considerable care to achieving a balance between technical information and homiletic-devotional interpretation.
