Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

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

From the Back Cover

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. K. M. Adam, Christian Century

The first commentary I used in this series by Brazos, Jonah, was an incredibly thoughtful and faithful work. It didn't fit neatly into a category of verse-by-verse, exegetical commentary, but I already had a couple of those and wanted a work to handle, idea-by-idea, what the text was talking about. In light of that experience I was looking forward to Telford Work's commentary on Deuteronomy.

Its uniqueness was a pleasant, if not semi-expected, experience. While Work does take the text in chunks of verses he does not primarily treat the grammatical or literary/critical aspects of the book. In fact, he rarely does. Instead, his stated goal is, "to form and discipline a contemporary apostolic imagination by reading every passage of Deuteronomy according to the sensibilities of the New Testament church." (pg. 18) To a pastor looking for ways to read and expound on Deuteronomy that would energize believers, this was an exciting goal.

To that end, Work took some cues from early church theological categories and the structure of the Talmud and ended up with a work that comments on each passage through a combination of lenses he labels as: Plain, Faith, Hope, and Love.

It takes some getting used to. With each scripture commented on, the reader has to grow accustomed to what each category conveys and how each leads you through the passage in Deuteronomy to New Testament Scriptures and Christ. But once that learning curve is met, there are some very thoughtful and valuable things to be gained.

In every commentary that attempts to "apply" a passage of Scripture there are moments of hit and miss. And it is probably up to each reader to determine what exactly hits and misses.

In keeping with Brazos stated goal of offering theological commentaries, Telford Work offers a meditative commentary on Deuteronomy. Each passage of the texts receives a four-fold reflection: plain, faith, hope, and love. These four reflections are usually about a paragraph long. In the plain section, Work offers a straightforward sense of the text, drawing up literal understanding as well as literary or historical meaning. Then he proceeds to introduce three other historical approaches to Biblical texts: allegorical and focused primarily upon the fulfillment in Christ and his Church (faith), anagogical or eschatological (hope), and tropological or moral (love). I use this commentary for a slow, prayerful reading of the various passages.

A mildly bizarre and experimental commentary. Almost a thought experiment. Just how much can I annoy my readers by noting every time I use male pronouns for God? Here's a page showing what my commentary would look like if it was organized like the Talmud.

Might be helpful as vacation reading or a supplemental reading along with stodgy academic and straight theological commentaries. There are some interesting and even edifying insights scattered about, but think supplemental, entertainment, or personal edification and not the backbone of sermon preparation. Intriguing but not finally satisfying.

Sent to me by a book seller by accident.
