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.Read more ›
