Overview

Focused on fleshing out the gospel message in the Old Testament, Daniel Block’s studies on the Pentateuch and ancient Near Eastern culture are useful aids to both the preacher and the professor. In this collection, Block examines the rich theology of Deuteronomy and its mature reflection on God’s great acts of salvation. He also explores the stark contrast between the unique religion of the Israelites and the relationship between other ancient Near Eastern nations and their deities. These works demonstrate the continuity of God’s grace from the Old Testament to the New, recovering the life-giving message of the Old Testament.

  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Daniel Block explores the relationship between ancient Near Eastern nations and their respective deities. Block demonstrates how this relationship was expressed in everyday life, national identity, and history. Consequently, Israel’s theocratic culture is illuminated in comparison to other Near Eastern cultures.

A welcome addition for anyone interested in the Old Testament and comparative ancient Near Eastern materials.

Bill T. Arnold, Paul S. Amos Professor of Old Testament Interpretation, Asbury Theological Seminary

Valuable for both historical and theological studies. I recommend it highly to persons who wish to integrate history and theology in a meaningful way.

Paul R. House, professor of divinity, Beeson Divinity School

Of fundamental importance for those wanting to provide a context for Israelite religion.

The Gospel according to Moses: Theological and Ethical Reflections on the Book of Deuteronomy

  • Author: Daniel I. Block
  • Publisher: Cascade
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 394

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

To many people, the law stands in opposition to the gospel. The book of Deuteronomy will not allow this reading. It is the Old Testament’s most systematic and sustained presentation of theology. Deuteronomy—Moses’ Gospel—begins and ends with the gracious work of God for undeserving subjects. Consisting largely of Moses’ farewell sermons, Israel’s first pastor calls his congregation to a life of faith and godliness in response to God’s great mercy.

The essays in this collection arise from a larger project driven by a passion to recover for Christians the life-giving message of the Old Testament in general, and Deuteronomy in particular.

This collection of his thoughtful articles on Deuteronomy will be invaluable to anyone studying the book.

John H. Walton, professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College and Graduate School

This theological manifesto of ancient Israel continues to speak across the centuries, and there can be no better guide than Block to help the people of God today hear the abiding voice of the one true God in its pages.

M. Daniel Carroll R., distinguished professor of Old Testament, Denver Seminary

How I Love Your Torah, O LORD! Studies in the Book of Deuteronomy

  • Author: Daniel I. Block
  • Publisher: Cascade
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 270

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Like the book of Romans in the New Testament, the book of Deuteronomy provides the Old Testament’s most systematic and sustained presentation of theology. And like the Gospel of John, it represents mature theological reflection on God’s great acts of salvation—in this case associated with the exodus of Israel.

But for many Christians, Deuteronomy is a dead book, because it is either unknown or misunderstood. The essays in this collection arise from a larger project driven by a passion to recover the life-giving message of the Old Testament.

Dr. Block brings clarity to crucial issues in biblical interpretation and reveals the grace of God in the law of Moses.

Philip G. Ryken, president, Wheaton College

Block powerfully unpacks this crucial book. His passion is contagious and his insight will transform how you read Deuteronomy.

Robert H. Gundry, professor of Old Testament, Westmont College

Block writes with energy, passion, and clarity. He is at home both in teasing out linguistic details and in delineating large theological landscapes.

Elmer A. Martens, president emeritus and professor of Old Testament emeritus, Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary
