He discusses the nature and character of the law as revealed in Deuteronomy, as well as the nature of the moral life under God. The treatment of Deuteronomy in the New Testament, and customary introductory issues such as authorship and date, are dealt with in terms of their significance for interpreting and understanding Deuteronomy's character and intention.Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

First Sentence
The aim of this introduction is to ask some of the typical questions having to do with the background of a literary work and to think about it as a whole, in order to show how answers to such questions, insofar as they are obtainable, may give a reader of Deuteronomy some clues to understanding the book and its purpose. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars An insightful, comprehensive, and outstanding volume to conclude the Interpretation series on the Pentateuch. 29 Mar 2014
By C.H.E. Sadaphal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Torah (Genesis through Deuteronomy) does not describe the entry into the Promised Land, but does describe the journey on how to get there. Fittingly, the Book of Deuteronomy is a book about a people on the verge, with the assured promise ahead of them and the bondage of the past behind them. Appropriately, Miller’s book is dedicated to revealing the essential character and message of the Bible’s fifth book: exactly how the believing community should live once they do arrive into the promise, and the fundamental issue of faith—how a believer should face the future that lies ahead.

The author provides a rich and comprehensive interpretation of the text, describes the revelation of the Book in the New Testament, analyses the blueprint for a moral and just society as prescribed by Mosaic Law, defines the proper role of leaders and priests from the Biblical perspective, and expounds upon exactly how individuals must interact in a divinely-inspired society. I found particularly interesting Miller’s description and analysis of the Mosaic Law as an elaboration of the commandments set forth in the Decalogue.

Many political demagogues today would find this commentary very illuminating, especially its discussion on caring for the unfortunate, justice, and appropriate interpersonal relations in a community of faith.

Overall, I have been extremely satisfied thus far with many volumes in the Interpretation series and this volume is no exception. Deuteronomy Interpretation certainly does not disappoint and will prove to be a valuable resource for those who wish to interpret the scriptures, teach the Bible, or preach to a congregation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding of Deuteronomy has been enhanced 24 July 2012

This was used for class on Deuteronomy at seminary and I gained a much clearer understanding of how to use this fifth book of the Hebrew Bible with clarity of both the content and context. I feel this author knows his material and can convey it well because of his vast knowledge.
