Now Choose Life: Theology and Ethics in Deuteronomy

Book Information

Though written thousands of years ago, the book of Deuteronomy is unmatched in its relevance for the affluent Western church of today. Moses' words were meant to equip God's people for living godly lives in a prosperous, pluralistic world. The cultural changes now taking place in our own social setting make the parallel between Israel and the church--and what Deuteronomy has to say--both pertinent and instructive.

Now Choose Life offers a significant study of Deuteronomy that recovers this Scripture's vibrant message for the contemporary Christian community. Showing the major contribution that Deuteronomy makes to our understanding of the Bible as a whole, J. Gary Millar explores Deuteronomy's ethical teaching in the light of its most important theological themes: covenant, journey, law, the nations, and human nature. His perceptive analysis reveals the power with which Deuteronomy calls God's covenant people, from ancient Israelites to modern-day Christians, to hear God's voice and do his will.

Whether read for its critical study of Scripture or for its practical insights into living faithfully today, this book will be a valuable resource for school, church and home.

'This ancient book reminds us, perhaps more than anything else, that the goal of all theology, and the goal of all ethics, is to show us the grace of God, and to encourage us to throw ourselves on him, or, to use the words of Moses, to 'choose life' as we embrace the God who has chosen us in Christ.' (pp. 182–3) Brilliant!
