Description

Pastors and leaders of the classical church--such as Augustine, Calvin, Luther, and Wesley--interpreted the Bible theologically, believing Scripture as a whole witnessed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern interpreters of the Bible questioned this premise. But in recent decades, a critical mass of theologians and biblical scholars has begun to reassert the priority of a theological reading of Scripture. The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. In the eighth volume in the series, Telford Work presents a theological exegesis of Deuteronomy.

Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible "[Peter] Leithart's work [in 1 & 2 Kings is] stimulating in its unabashedly theological interpretive stance. Such a starting point for the exegetical task inquires differently of the text and renders fresh applications and observations. The two disciplines of biblical and theological studies can only benefit from cross-disciplinary engagement and, certainly, Leithart demonstrates that both disciplines can be used critically and in service of the Church."--Lissa M. Wray Beal, Toronto Journal of Theology "[Jaroslav] Pelikan launches a potentially significant commentary series [with Acts]. . . . Pelikan's volume robustly demonstrates what reading enlivened by tradition and dogma can look like. It is a timely invitation to the church and the academy to question both the artificially erected barriers between doctrine and scripture and the anxiously maintained gaps between 'then' and 'now.'"--Angus Paddison, International Journal of Systematic Theology "The value of [Matthew] is its bringing Matthew into unity with the rest of the biblical witness to the Gospel as that witness has been expounded by the church. The soundness of the commentary lies in [Stanley] Hauerwas's own theology having been honed by the church. . . . This Brazos series can play an important role in reminding one of the community's indispensable role in understanding the Bible, and Hauerwas's contribution to the series is a formidable one indeed!"--Gene L. Davenport, Catholic Biblical Quarterly "All will appreciate the conviction, clarity, and profundity with which [Stanley Hauerwas] writes. . . . Anyone wishing to become acquainted with theological exegesis should consider [Matthew]. Hauerwas offers a fresh perspective on Matthew that is aberrantly insightful, colorful, compelling, and powerful. Well-written, fast-paced, and accessible to laity, Hauerwas delivers thoughtful and thought-provoking conversation."--Thomas Seat, Princeton Theological Review

Back cover copy

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Deuteronomy, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--through aid in preaching, teaching, study groups, and so forth--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible. "Deuteronomy summarizes the Torah and casts its long influence on the rest of the canon. Telford Work insightfully guides the reader through this important book and displays its significance to today's community of faith. I particularly appreciate his commitment to the text, unwilling to explain away some of its more difficult features. I recommend this not only to clergy and students, but also to biblical scholars who will benefit from the perspective of a theologian who is grounded in the Bible."--Tremper Longman III, Westmont College Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible "What Jaroslav Pelikan offers us [in Acts] . . . is neither a commentary nor a book of homilies, but rather a set of observations on what phrases and passages in Acts might remind us of in the later history of Christian doctrine. As a sampler of vintage Pelikan tidbits, it is a scintillating piece of work, a tour de force in the history of dogma, a kaleidoscope of brilliant reflections by a generous and faithful Christian scholar."--Brian E. Daley, SJ, Pro Ecclesia "[In Matthew, Stanley Hauerwas] continually draws Matthean motifs together with similar features in the rest of the Bible and shows where subsequent generations found the basis for their doctrinal reasoning. . . . This commentary serves readers admirably by connecting the points that lie between the first and twenty-first centuries and by reminding readers that Matthew's Gospel has played a deep, broad role in centuries of theological reflection."--A.
