The Gospel according to Moses:
A Commentary on Deuteronomy

Publication Objectives

The biblical book of Deuteronomy synthesizes the theology of the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) and offers an important starting point for later biblical authors to interpret the history of God’s covenant with Israel. With this three-volume set Inspirata has made a study of the first order on this special book available to the church and the academy.

This commentary represents the best of Dr. Block’s lifelong study on Deuteronomy, inviting readers to hear the Gospel (good news) message that Moses delivered in his farewell addresses to Israel on the threshold of the land God had promised to his people. For those who desire clear and sound interpretation that captures Moses’ pastoral heart, or an introduction to scholarship on the historical, literary, theological, and canonical perspectives of Deuteronomy, this commentary is a good place to start.
