by Victor P. HamiltonThe Song of Moses (Deuteronomy 32) gives an exciting, creative summary of God's self-revelation at Sinai, a "living" interpretation of God's faithful covenant with his people and all creation. Venerable biblical scholar and teacher George A. F. Knight demonstrates how these forty-three verses from one of the most ancient passages in the Bible constitute a quarry out of which much later theology has been hewn. As Knight shows, theologians from biblical times to our own have developed a theology of remembering from these verses, clarifying and expressing Moses' words in terms of their respective social settings. Originating in God's own words as revealed to Moses, the Song allowed Israel to remember God's mighty acts in history and to summarize those experiences and ideals that would allow them to survive as a people. Beyond that, the Song also sheds important light on Israel's mission-in-covenant to the nations and on that of the Church and Synagogue today. Written in accord with the aims of the International Theological Commentary series, of which Knight serves as coeditor, this volume is for minister, educators, and students who seek to move beyond the commonly used historical-critical approach to Old Testament interpretation by taking up a theological perspective on the Hebrew text.
