8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By OT Guy on June 12, 2010
Format: Hardcover
With this commentary on Deuteronomy, John D. Currid (PhD, Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago) exposits this book as part of his series of Pentateuchal commentaries published in the EP Study Commentary Series. Currid is an archaeologist and historian giving his work the benefit of addressing not only philological and theological questions, but concrete matters of social setting as well. Furthermore, as a minister, Currid's exposition is sensitive to the role of Deuteronomy as part of Christian scripture and witness to the person and work of Jesus Christ.

In this review I will offer some praise and critique of this book. My comments assume that the ideal reader of this commentary is the lay person interested in a detailed understanding of Deuteronomy. It is not technical enough for the scholar, though pastors will likely find a good conversation partner in this volume insofar as Currid's writing style seems to anticipate the kinds of questions lay people might ask thereby allowing pastors to have the right kinds of issues on their radar as they teach or preach the book.

Several items commend this volume to readers:
First, piggy backing on what I wrote above, this volume is thorough. At 600+ pages, it is an exhaustive treatment of every pericope in Deuteronomy. From history to theology to ritual, Currid has an answer and a footnote to support it. Readers who are generally frustrated by commentaries that don't address the specific verse they are pondering will find Currid to be very helpful.

Second, also piggy backing on what I said above, this volume is popular. Usually thorough commentaries are written with the scholar, or at least trained clergy in mind.

4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Commentary Surveyor on April 6, 2007
Format: Hardcover
In this lengthy exposition of Deuteronomy (EP Study Commentary, 580 pp.), John Currid refers to the usual suspects (Christensen, McConville, Merrill, Tigay, Thompson, Weinfeld) but distinguishes the forest from the trees in a way even academics can appreciate. This is especially true for generally prescriptive passages relating to the sacrificial system, law codes, and building specifications. Currid has already completed Genesis, Exodus, and Leviticus for the series.
