Despite the common opinion of church-age Christians, Dr. Schultz maintains that the book of Deuteronomy is not the narrative of a never-smiling God and a frightened, timid nation. Rather, the love of Jehovah for his people is the heart of this Old Testament book.
Deuteronomy: The Gospel of Love offers a simple but thorough exposition of this important though frequently overlooked divine record. Bringing rewarding insights from the original Hebrew text, it puts heavy stress on the love relationship between God and His specially chosen people.
This commentary reflects a rare grasp of the Hebrew language and the Old Testament Scriptures. It will aid any student or layman in his personal investigation of the character of God as seen in His patient working with Israel.
Samuel J. Schultz is an emeritus professor of Bible and theology at Wheaton College.
