Deuteronomy: Loving Obedience to a Loving God
This new volume in the freshly redesigned Preaching the Word series makes the message of Deuteronomy accessible and applicable to Christians today. According to Ajith Fernando, this often-neglected book of the Old Testament holds powerful relevance for Christians grappling with the issue of obeying God in a world that promotes alternative ways of life. Deuteronomy centers around God’s love for Israel and the love he asks for in return; it is the love of God then that is presented as a primary motivation for obedience.
Fernando’s insightful exposition is rich with anecdotes from his thirty-five years of ministry to first-generation Christians in Sri Lanka. Written by a pastor for pastors and their people, this book offers concrete and helpful examples of how the truths contained in Deuteronomy can be applied today. While our culture and the world of the Bible might seem vastly different, even the detailed laws of the Old Testament hold relevance as they continue to reflect the mind and heart of God.
