Customer Reviews for The Book of Deuteronomy: New International Commentary on the Old Testament [NICOT]
Review 1 for The Book of Deuteronomy: New International Commentary on the Old Testament [NICOT]
Date:October 5, 2012
This is a wonderful read for the person seeking more than general insight without being forced to deal with a very heavy technical commentary on the book of Deuteronomy. The writer has very good insight into proper interpretation of Biblical Scholarship and seeks to explain his opinions in the language of the common layperson. Although I would question his his understand on the commandment of "Though Shall not Steel" that explained on 5:19. I would encourage everyone that is seeking a good education in Biblical Law to own and read a copy of it.
