Featured Review

"He keeps the connectedness of the text before us and yet can dash off to capture a Hebrew participle or suffix, pilfer a bit of Near Eastern background, or serve up the succinct result of a word study - all to light up a passage."

Dale Ralph Davis, Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina


Description

'Deuteronomy' is a misnomer, it means 'the second law'. The name is taken from Deuteronomy 17:18 where the expression really means having a copy of the law. Deuteronomy is therefore not a second, different, law but a renewal of the covenant made on Mount Sinai. For a people on the brink of entering their promised land Deuteronomy confirmed God's gracious promises as they prepared for new horizons and adventures:

Reviews

"Allan Harman's exposition is as clear as crystal... This is a work of fine scholarship lightly worn."

Geoffrey Grogan, (1925-2011), Principal of Glasgow Bible College and well-respected author


... students of the Bible will be thankful for years to come for Professor Harman's labours.

Reformed Theological Review


Allan Harman has written a fine exposition of Deuteronomy. He places the book in its literary, canonical and historical contexts without compromising evangelical convictions about Scripture.
A particular delight here are the tools Harman brings to bear from time to time: a word study here, a comment on the wider biblical background there, a reference to the archaeological background somewhere else. These are gems, and models of the judicious use of critical tools to shed light on God's word. Cross-references to other parts of the Bible set this auth or apart from non-evangelical commentators: all the important New Testament quotations and allusions are mentioned in the commentary, and New Testament passages are allowed to act as interpretative controls.
Never is this a dry book, however, because the willing reader encounters the living God through opening the biblical text. Highly recommended.

Churchman Journal


"May we beg from israel's God that kind of spiritual-mindedness that will enable us to prepare for the heavenly Land of promise that he has bequeathed us through the death of his Beloved son."
