Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Deuteronomy (New International Commentary on the Old Testament)?

One of the Best On Jesus' Most Quoted From Book  Apr 18, 2001
Craigie was an excellent scholar. This work on Deuteronomy is among the best. Having translated this book word for word from the Hebrew, I can assure you that Craigie hits at major themes and continuity of the book.

His historical section on covenant is particularly good. The sainted F.F. Bruce said of this work: "not only a monumnet of Hebrew literature but a permanent part of Christian Scripture."

Craigie believes that this is a series of sermons given by Moses as they were perched on edge of promised land. In author's words: "Provides a paradigm for the kingdom of God in the modern world."

Does an excellent job with commandments, promises of curses and blessings. Must have for the serious student of Deuteronomy who believes as Craigie in the Word of God not the product of human imagination.

 
Quick Review  Jun 7, 2000
Intermediate or advanced level from the NICOT series. Read everything you can by this author. Thorough and scholarly in general, may not be as technical as more serious interpreters may like.
 
Review of Craigie's Deuteronomy  May 4, 2000
Briefly, Craigies' commentary on Deuteronomy is a good synopsis of the content. However, the work lacks much of the sort of detail that expositor's of the text are often looking for in a commentary. Obviously, there is much to cover in such a work, but his strength is not so much in linguistic studies, but in giving one an overall sense of the flow and meaning of the text. This is a good resource for introducing one to the thought of Deuteronomy. Unfortunately, it is lacking in much of what an expositor wants, particularly in an OT commentary.
