Famed conservative radio host Dennis Prager has announced the next book in the nationally bestselling “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 at all, the book from Regnery Faith editions examines the relevance of the fifth book of the Bible for the contemporary world, as well as the life of each individual.
Prager, the founder of PragerU, asks readers to ask many questions about Deuteronomy and the Bible in general, such as: Why is the Bible the most influential literature in the history of the world? 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 most difficult topics posed by the book of Deuteronomy, including divorce, transgender, the role of women, and God commanding the Israelites to commit genocide.
The latest installment in his vast body of work, like his previous publications, approaches everything based on reason, rather than faith alone. His goal? To change your mind, and therefore 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, both of which boast scores above 4.5/5 based on hundreds of reviews on Goodreads.

As he explained in an interview with Fox News, Prager believes his job is to “bring the Bible to as many people in the world as possible, so they have access to the best guide to life ever written.” .
The Rational Bible: Deuteronomy by Dennis Prager is available October 11, 2022.
The five-volume The Rational Bible commentary on the Torah, a previous series by Prager, is widely regarded as 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 as the No. 1 best-selling nonfiction book 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, was widely criticized for expressing his views on nearly every major issue facing the world today.
His latest novel will likely touch on a number of topics which some believe will challenge modern ethics, but which may also find enlightening or stimulating.
“Things that at first seem irrelevant, primitive, or even immoral turn out to be important and often great moral leaps forward,” Prager said of his series.
