Dominik Markl, SJ--Jesuit School of Theology, Berkeley Deuteronomy, though still relatively unknown, is now at the center of the discussion of biblical theology. The great merit of Lundbom's commentary is that it will make accessible to a broad scholarly readership theological themes that are essential for both Judaism and Christianity. Robert Miller--Catholic University of America Jack Lundbom has written what is at last the successor to S. R. Driver's 1895 ICC commentary on Deuteronomy. This exhaustive work includes a fresh translation kept close to the Hebrew so as to bring out rhetorical structures lost in English since the King James Version. Each passage is accompanied by commentary, along with abundant referrals to further scholarship, focusing especially on delimitation, framing, keywords, chiasms, and inclusios determined both from the rhetorical criticism Lundbom is known for and from evidence in the ancient manuscripts. The extensive supplementary material at the start of the volume lays out moderate, cautious positions, conversant with the latest critical scholarship.

"Review of Biblical Literature" A magisterial work. . . . Broad and wide-ranging in scope. It is the most thorough and comprehensive commentary on Deuteronomy to date. Lundbom's lucid style allows the commentary not only to inform the scholar but makes it accessible to students and clergy as well. . . . An invaluable resource for research in the book of Deuteronomy. . . . The benchmark for the next generation of Deuteronomy commentaries. "Preaching" A significant technical commentary with particular attention also given to the theology of the book. "The Bible Today" One does not read a commentary from cover to cover. One consults it as a resource. Accordingly, this is a commentary of note. . . . One can hardly do a study of Deuteronomy without consulting this monumental work.

It strikes a remarkable balance between brevity and satisfactory coverage of subjects immensely broad in scope. Lundbom s writing style is concise and accessible, reflecting an ease that comes from years of teaching and research within the discipline of Old Testament studies. This accessibility, along with Lundbom s fastidious cross-referencing, makes the commentary an especially valuable resource for pastors, religious educators, students, and laypersons. The specialist will find that much detail is omitted in Lundbom s prodigious work, but the result is readable prose, easily graspable overviews, and effective orientation to basic issues. "Expository Times" A very erudite, yet accessible, commentary that beautifully and judiciously elucidates most aspects of the book of Deuteronomy. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in the book of Deuteronomy, including laymen, pastors, and academics, and even those of all faiths and none. The author is to be congratulated for his efforts. "Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses" A significant contribution to the study of the book of Deuteronomy. . . . Lundbom has performed an impressive "tour de force "to bring a wealth of information together in a single volume. Moreover, its highlighting of the book s rhetorical aspects sets this work apart from other commentaries. " Stone Campbell Journal -Delightfully readable. . . . The relaxed style of Lundbom's prose will invite readers to a wise and pastoral conversation partner for a thorough exegesis of one text, or a journey through the whole of Deuteronomy.- Hebrew Studies -Lundbom's commentary is dense in breadth and depth. He covers an impressive ground of scholarship and traditions. . . . A tremendous resource for any scholar of Deuteronomy.- Dominik Markl, SJ -- Jesuit School of Theology, Berkeley -Deuteronomy, though still relatively unknown, is now at the center of the discussion of biblical theology.
