'Deuteronomy' is a misnomer, it means 'the second law'. The name is taken from Deuteronomy 17:18 where the expression really means having a copy of the law. Deuteronomy is therefore not a second, different, law but a renewal of the covenant made on Mount Sinai. For a people on the brink of entering their promised land Deuteronomy confirmed God's gracious promises as they prepared for new horizons and adventures:


Allan Harman shows the covenant structure of Deuteronomy throughout its 5 key sections


  • Historical introduction (1:1 to 4:49)

  • The Foundation of the Covenant Relationship (5:1 to 31)

  • The Exposition of Ten Commandments (6:1 to 26:15)

  • The Re-affirmation of the Covenant (27:1 to 30:20)

  • The Continuation of the Covenant (31:1 to 34:12)


"He keeps the connectedness of the text before us and yet can dash off to capture a Hebrew participle or suffix, pilfer a bit of Near Eastern background, or serve up the succinct result of a word study - all to light up a passage."

-- Dale Ralph Davis

... students of the Bible will be thankful for years to come for Professor Harman's labours.

-- Reformed Theological Review

Allan Harman has written a fine exposition of Deuteronomy. He places the book in its literary, canonical and historical contexts without compromising evangelical convictions about Scripture.
A particular delight here are the tools Harman brings to bear from time to time: a word study here, a comment on the wider biblical background there, a reference to the archaeological background somewhere else. These are gems, and models of the judicious use of critical tools to shed light on God's word. Cross-references to other parts of the Bible set this auth or apart from non-evangelical commentators: all the important New Testament quotations and allusions are mentioned in the commentary, and New Testament passages are allowed to act as interpretative controls.
Never is this a dry book, however, because the willing reader encounters the living God through opening the biblical text. Highly recommended.

-- Churchman Journal

"Allan Harman's exposition is as clear as crystal... This is a work of fine scholarship lightly worn."

-- Geoffrey Grogan

"May we beg from israel's God that kind of spiritual-mindedness that will enable us to prepare for the heavenly Land of promise that he has bequeathed us through the death of his Beloved son."
