Renowned conservative radio host Dennis Prager has announced the next book in the nationally best-selling “Rational Bible” series, titled “Deuteronomy: God, Blessings and Curses.”
Considered the fruit of Prager’s forty years of teaching people of various faiths, or no faith, the book from Regnery Faith Publishers examines the relevance of the fifth book of the Bible to the contemporary world, as well as the life of each individual.
Prager, the founder of PragerU, asks readers to consider numerous questions about Deuteronomy and the Bible in general, such as: Why is the Bible the most influential piece of literature in world history? Why do people dismiss it as irrational? What does the book say about God, his blessings and his curse?

The book also tackles some of the more difficult issues raised in the book of Deuteronomy, such as divorce, transgenderism, the role of women, and God ordering the Israelites to commit genocide.
The latest installment of his extensive work, like his previous publications, approaches everything based on reason, rather than just faith. Your goal? To change minds and, as a result, change the lives of readers.
“If something I write isn’t rational, I haven’t done my job,” Prager said of his analysis.
The author has also published two other books in the series, Genesis and Exodus, which have over 4.5/5 ratings based on hundreds of reviews on Goodreads.

As he explained in an interview with Fox News, Prager sees his job as “making the Bible known to as many people around the world as possible, so that they have access to the best life guide ever written.”
The Rational Bible: Deuteronomy by Dennis Prager is available on October 11, 2022.
The five-volume Rational Bible Commentary on the Torah, an earlier series by Prager, is widely considered one of the most important biblical commentaries ever written. On the day of its release, it had the rare achievement for religious literature of debuting at No. 1 on the best-selling non-fiction books in America on the day of its publication.
Prager developed the book series while teaching Torah about 25 years ago at a Jewish university and noticed that half of his students were non-Jews. He realized that “either the Torah has something to say to everyone or it has nothing to say to the Jews.”

He is no stranger to controversy, and prior to writing his Bible series, he was widely criticized for expressing his views on nearly every major issue facing the world today.
His latest novel is likely to take on a range of themes that some believe challenge modern ethics, but may also find enlightening or thought-provoking.
“Things that at first seem irrelevant, primitive or even immoral turn out to be important and often make great moral leaps forward,” Prager said of his series.
