The Book of Deuteronomy
Deuteronomy is a book about a community being prepared for a new life. Hardship and the wilderness lie behind; the promised land lies ahead. But in the present moment, there is a call for a new commitment to God and a fresh understanding of the nature of the community of God's people.

It has been, and continues to be, one of the most important and debated works in modern biblical scholarship. - Author's preface.
