The Book of Deuteronomy is the most 'theological' book in the Hebrew Scriptures, and its ideas form the basis for the Judeo-Christian philosophy of life. Weinfeld's commentary on the first eleven chapters of Deuteronomy considers some of the most important elements in the entire book and in the entire Law: the Shema, the Ten Commandments, the history of Law, and the story of the Israelites' disastrous worship of the golden calf. Weinfeld, a professor at Hebrew University, is the world's foremost Deuteronomic scholar. 458 Pages. Softcover from Yale University Press.
