Book Description

15 May 2008 Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries
Thousands camped east of the Jordan, ready to cross it, eradicate a decadent culture and establish their own nation. Their remarkable leader Moses, soon to die, stood and spoke to them. He reminded them of their covenant relation to Yahweh their Lord, of Yahweh's mighty acts on their behalf, of the practical differences their loyalty to Yahweh should make. He implored them to be totally devoted to their sovereign God.

The book of Deuteronomy records these speeches. For J. A. Thompson, we cannot fail to be challenged by the persistent demands throughout the book that we should acknowledge the complete and sole sovereignty of God in our lives. Nor can we fail to be touched by the noble concept of God that underlies the whole book.

This classic commentary has been completely retypset and presented in a fresh, vibrant new large paperback format, with new global branding.

The Tyndale Bible Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section-by-section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties. The aim throughout is to explain the true meaning of the Bible and make its message plain.

From the Author

From the AUTHOR'S PREFACE

The very considerable interest which the early Christians showed in the book of Deuteronomy provides some measure of its significance as a book of devotion and inspiration and a source of guidance for life. The sympathetic reader cannot fail to be challenged by the persistent demands throughout the book that he should acknowledge the complete and sole sovereignty of God in his life. Nor can he fail to be touched by the noble concept of God that underlies the whole book. Even though the great principles of Deuteronomy are expressed in terms which are at times strange to us in the twentieth century AD, we may grasp the principles and give them a present application. The results will be startling. Let the twentieth-century man place himself under the sovereignty of God in every area of his life and he will have begun to understand the import of the book of Deuteronomy.

There are many questions of a technical nature, such as historical background, literary form, language, etc., on which commentators are not agreed. One can only explore the possibilities in each case and wait for more light. It is the strong opinion of the present commentator that the hand of Moses should be discerned throughout the book, even if it is not possible to decide the extent of editorial work.

It has seemed valuable to introduce the name Yahweh, the Hebrew name for Israel's God, in the course of the present exposition in the hope that readers might capture some of the majesty and wonder of that sacred name. In English versions the expression the Lord seems to lack something of the character of the Hebrew name.

It is (the Author's) hope that this commentary will assist the reader of Deuteronomy to come to recognize the sovereignty of God in every area of his life.

John A. Thompson

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but not the most exciting read. 8 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
I got this from Amazon secondhand for 60p plus postage. The condition was a few creases in the cover but sturdy enough in that it will last a few years yet, so I was pleased with my purchase. As commentaries go I've never found the Tyndale series to be the most exciting read (I generally prefer something with a bit more narrative flow). However, that said technically the commentary can't be faulted and it is very thorough as it goes through the text verse by verse. It certainly proved useful in my studies of this sadly neglected book and if I could give it half a star more I would!
