Item description for Word Biblical Commentary Vol. 6a, Deuteronomy 1-21:9 (revised & Expanded), (christensen), 592pp by Duane Christensen, Thomas Nelson Publishers & Rivers Rutherford...

The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

Publishers Description

For centuries the book of Deuteronomy has been studied as a compilation of three sermons followed by three appendices. In his penetrating new study of this fifth book of the Pentateuch, Duane Christensen posits that "Deuteronomy is best explained as a didactic poem, composed to be recited publicly to music in ancient Israel within a liturgical setting." As such, the book can become a window allowing the modem reader to observe the poetic and musical traditions of early Hebrew worshipers.

In this commentary Christensen calls scholars and devotional readers alike to treasure Deuteronomy not simply as an ancient code of Hebraic law but rather as "a work of extraordinary literary coherence, poetic 11eauty, and political sophistication" that has provided centuries of religious instruction and education to God's people.

Christensen's fresh look at this ancient book immerses the reader in a probing analysis of the literary, theological, and social issues in the world of Moses' day. He discusses such topics as: the practical implications of the historic Sinai covenant with its high moral and spiritual standards for God's people; the artistic and literary structures of Deuteronomy, stylistic forms not unlike those seen in ancient and modem epic poetry and music.

This revised edition of WBC 6A now includes commentary on the first part of Deuteronomy's legal code (Deut. 12:1-21:9) and completely revises and updates the commentary on chapters 1-11 with discussion of the most current research. Especially innovative is this edition's use of evidence from the synagogue's traditional cycle of Torah readings to reveal the structure of the whole book of Deuteronomy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Word Biblical Commentary Vol. 6a, Deuteronomy 1-21:9 (revised & Expanded), (christensen), 592pp?

It's been a long wait!  May 27, 2002
With the publication of this book, Word have completed the best commentary on Deuteronomy in a century. Samuel Driver's legendary commentary will still be useful for occasional reference, but for most purposes it is finally superseded by this one. It is in the standard Word commentary format, so users of the series will know what to expect. Particularly useful is the discussion about the impact of the Dead Sea Scrolls, found long after Driver's death.
