The book of Deuteronomy finds the Israelites on the cusp of entering the land that had been promised to them since the days of Abraham. This second giving of the law is to be the bedrock of the society they build – to be people identified as the people of Yahweh. Douglas F. Kelly helpfully exposits this book considering not only its importance to the original hearers, but also the impact it has for the church today. The Mentor Expository Series holds to an inerrant view of Scripture. The series is thoroughly researched with helpful practical application. This is a resource for pastors and Bible teachers who want to draw on Christ–centered expository teaching and for the lay reader who wants to delve more deeply into the riches of the Word of God.
Douglas F. Kelly is Professor of Theology Emeritus, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina.
"… an excellent, lucid exposition of Deuteronomy. He presents the message of the book in a clear and accessible way. Free from jargon and technicalities, while yet informed by scholarly discussion, this should be of great value for pastors and lay readers alike."
Robert Letham, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales
"Here, faithfully proclaimed, is the book of the Bible to which Christ turned three times in a row when tempted by the devil, applied to our homes and hearts. Highly recommended!"
Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
"Dr. Kelly drills down into the word of God to tap into the well of biblical truth. His exposition flows with the living water of the gospel that equips for every good work—he points the church to Christ so we can seek the grace of God for salvation and godly living."
J. V. Fesko, Harriet Barbour Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
"Dr. Kelly’s exceptional preaching skills and insightful application make this a page turner. The importance of Deuteronomy, both in Moses’ time and later in the reforms of King Josiah make it uniquely important for our time. Dr. Kelly will inspire a host of preachers to take up Deuteronomy and preach it."
Derek W. H. Thomas, Senior Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
