The first half of the book is dedicated to Dr Hall’s academic interests in Deuteronomy and the writing prophets. In this section, essays discuss various issues found within Deuteronomy, as well as its influence in other parts of the Old and New Testaments. Additional articles deal with hermeneutical issues related to the interpretation and application of Old Testament texts.The second half of the book reflects Dr. Hall’s dedication to teaching, preaching and the training of ministers for the church. Articles in this section address the influence of Deuteronomy in Christian education, worldview, and worship. Further essays discuss the importance of preaching Old Testament prophetic texts and how the Church can still benefit from their message. Overall, the articles found in this book contain creative and original approaches to many of the interpretive issues facing those reading Old Testament texts. However, the book doesn’t end there, but instead, much like the work of Dr Hall, presses on to demonstrate how the Old Testament still remains a key component for the life of the Church.
