After the first three volumes it becomes far more difficult to find consensus among the experts. While some consider Wright’s commentary troubling in a few respects, most do acknowledge that it has several unique strengths, particularly related to the field of ethics. For that reason I have added it to the #4 spot.
If I could only have one commentary on a deserted desert island (my wife would wonder why I would ever choose a commentary...) this would definitely be in contention for the top choice. A wonderful commentary. I started underlining things that were insightful and helpful but soon realized I was leaving little that was not underlined. Great commentary not just for gaining understanding of Deuteronomy but also the whole Bible and God's plan for the nations. Also helpful is that he includes some of the key literary insights from Christensen's commentary.
