This book focuses on the relation between the law of the Old Testament and the nature of God and of grace. Asserting that the laws are a result of theology, and not the other way around, McConville acknowledges Deuteronomy as a book of history and documentation of law, but also believes it gives great insight into the character of God. He begins his study with an introduction to the general theology of Deuteronomy. McConville then concentrates on several specific areas:

  • The Alter–Law
  • The Sacrifices
  • The Tithe
  • The Law of Firstlings
  • The Feasts
  • The Priests and Levites

McConville examines the text from historical, linguistic, literary, and theological standpoints. He includes notes, a bibliography, and indexes.
