Deuteronomy records Moses' parting words to Israel's new generation on the brink of the Promised Land. He recounts their history, sets before them God's covenant and laws, and instructs them on being God's people in the world. The author passionately explains this important theological book, with a particular eye towards implications for faithful life and witness in our own day.
