Explore the theological significance of Deuteronomy and interpret it for the 21st century. Work reasserts the priority of believing Scripture as a whole to be a witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ, just as the leaders of the classical church—Augustine, Calvin, and Luther—once did. Telford Work’s winsome theological exegesis of Deuteronomy will be of use to professors and students in Old Testament, Deuteronomy, Pentateuch, and theological interpretation courses as well as pastors and lay readers.
