Deuteronomy contains thirty-four chapters of history and Jewish law. Ending with the death of Moses, this significant fifth book of the Bible also concludes the Pentateuch. George Adam Smith's focused exegesis gives historical context to the rituals and laws discussed in Deuteronomy, with meticulous elucidation.
There are no better books in exposition of the different parts of Scripture than those contained in the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges. The series has long since established its claim to an honorable place in the front rank of first-rate commentaries; and the teacher or preacher who masters its volumes will be, like Apollos, mighty in the Scriptures.
