Wright is Principal of All Nations Christian College in England. His Ph.D. is from Cambridge University.This is a volume that moves the art of Old Testament commentary forward. His vigour of style and argument makes it more than mere commentary, but a work of theology itself. In Chris Wright, Deuteronomy has found an exponent who has shown its power and relevance to the modern world, and who even borrows some of its passion in his own writing.
