Item description for Deuteronomy (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching) by Patrick D. Jr. Miller...
Overview The book of Deuteronomy self-consciously addresses different generations of readers---creating unusual problems in understanding and interpretation. Patrick Miller steers preachers and teachers through these difficulties, carefully discussing the nature and character of the law, the nature of the moral life under God, and even the place of Deuteronomy in the New Testament.
In this theological exposition of Deuteronomy, Patrick Miller is sensitive to the character of the book as a part of scripture that self-consciously addresses different generations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Deuteronomy (Interpretation, a Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching)?
Excellent study material for understanding Deuteronomy! Dec 8, 2006
I was first introduced to this series, The Westminster Bible Companion in college. Since graduating I have become well on my way to completing the entire collection. I definitely recommend all of the books.
Each book in the series seems to have a different author (or set of authors) and so adds a different flavor. The interprations seem to be based on the consensus of most modern scholars and lend a more thorough understanding of the bible then you would get from simply reading it. Due to the age of the bible and distinct culture that it was written in, there can be parts of it that are hard for the modern reader to understand. This leads to frustration and ultimately ignorance of the profound message contained within. These books are a treasure and I believe them to be within reach of anyone, be they a member of clergy or a layman.
