Honey From the Rock

James Robson’s accessible study focuses on Deuteronomy’s storyline, explores its role within a biblical theology of the Old and New Testaments, and sets out its enduring function as an authoritative word for the Christian and the church today.
In the Old Testament, milk and honey are the enticing fare of the Promised Land; but honey as sweet nourishment extends to Yahwehâ€™s words, and Deuteronomy is a book filled with them.
A rock is hardly the most promising place to find nourishment, and perhaps for many readers Deuteronomy may seem equally unpromising. However, in the song of Moses Yahweh is pictured as the Rock (Deuteronomy 32:4). Our nourishment comes not just from Deuteronomy, but from God himself.
James Robsonâ€™s aim is to orient readers to Deuteronomy: to guide them in what to expect, to help them interpret what they find, and to help them think through the wider significance of what they have read. His study is for those interested in understanding Deuteronomyâ€™s role within a biblical theology of the Old and New Testaments, and for those convinced that when Deuteronomy is read, Godâ€™s voice is heard. All with a concern for Christian interpretation and appropriation of the book of Deuteronomy will appreciate Robsonâ€™s accessible exploration of â€˜a word with a story, to shape the life of Godâ€™s people
