Theme of Deuteronomy

God is the living Presence who can be encountered and known through his word addressed to each generation in turn.
Word and Presence: A Commentary on the Book of Deuteronomy

This is the theme of Deuteronomy according to Ian Cairns. I like it, though I wouldn’t buy into all his presuppositions on the book. I have long appreciated the “presence” theme in the Old Testament, so if I had the wherewithal I just might buy the dead-tree book. (I don’t use Logos, just saw the link on Twitter and took a peek.)
