    Book details


In contrast to the Torah/Pentateuch, the Deuteronomistic History is not recognised by Jewish or Christian tradition as a separate collection and the term itself is an invention of modern biblical scholarship. In this detailed investigation of the Deuteronomistic History, Thomas Romer provides students and scholars of the Old Testament with a complete guide to this important subject. Romer briefly outlines the content of biblical books relevant to the study of Deuteronomistic History - Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges and Samuel-Kings. He then defines the concept of Deuteronomistic History, surveying the evolution and history of the debate with particular emphasis on the work of Martin Noth. Romer then provides a sociological, historical and literary approach to the books from Deuteronomy to Kings. He examines questions such as: Why and how did Deuteronomism rise as a 'school' under Assyrian hegemony? What role did propaganda play in the composition of these books? What happened on an ideological and sociological level during the Exile and Persian period? Is the so-called Deuteronomistic literature properly understood as crisis literature? And what influence did the Deuteronomistic History have on the identity of the Second Temple period.

'For some time now there has been a need for an up-to-date, comprehensive treatment of the Deuteronomistic History...[t]his introduction fulfils all of those expectations very well....It remains a very thoughtful and well-informed study that may serve as a good starting point for further discussion...I warmly recommend it to students and scholars as an introduction to this field of study.' --RBL, John Van Seters'Romers erudite treatment of this subject is a must read for any and all who are engaged in study of DH.' --Calvin Theological Journal, November 2010
