This inaugural volume in the series, Themes and Issues in Biblical Studies, provides readers with informed presentations of a range of current debates concerning Deuteronomy as well as key themes and their implications. The contributors challenge a number of long-standing hypotheses and propose alternative options. E-publication of individual chapters will precede printing of the finalized collection. The volume includes issues such as the proposed influence of Esarhaddon’s Succession adê on Deuteronomy 13 and 12; berît as treaty, covenant, or instructions; Deuteronomy in dialogue with ancient Near Eastern law collections; reconceived Yahwism; Torah as a tool of propaganda and hegemony adapted from Persian dāta; characteristics of the Samaritan version of Deuteronomy; the possible Samarian input into the composition of Deuteronomy; and the influence of Deuteronomy on the final shape of the psalter. Themes examined include: geographical dimensions of the book; parenting; economic dimensions of the book; ethnicity and power; pedagogy; Moses as master scribe; pragmatism, utopia and dystopia in the book; ethics; the use of Deuteronomy in the New Testament; and war regulations in light of current military philosophy.
