The Problem of Deuteronomy


SPCK 1911

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


J.S. Griffiths exegetically extends commentary on the authorship, stylistic nature, divine inspiration, and historical context to the reader. Examining semantics side-by-side with evidenced inference, Griffiths expounds on key factors and implications of the text.

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, or anyone studying the book of Deuteronomy. With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to the Greek and Latin texts and English translations in your library. This makes this text more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “law” or “Deuteronomy 3:21.”

The Problem of Deuteronomy won the Bishop Jeune Memorial Prize for the best essay on “The Historical Truth and Divine Authority of the Book of Deuteronomy”.

This little book must rank as one of the best volumes in the language on the subject with which it deals, and if, as appears to be the case, it is its author’s primum opis, he may be heartily congratulated on having opened his literary career with a work at once so reverent, so scholarly, and so convincing.
