Item Description...
Overview
The Deuteronomistic History is the label used by scholars for the Old Testament books of Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings, as identified by Martin Noth. Campbell and O'Brien provide the biblical text with detailed notations on how this work came together, was modified, and was passed down to us in its present form, accounting for the shifts in Israel's and Judah's histories, their storytelling practices, and their ideological interests. Identifying and explaining what accounts for these literary and social processes makes this volume a major step forward for the study of this major block of biblical texts.

Publishers Description
"In Unfolding the Deuteronomistic History Campbell and O'Brien have provided a useful tool for getting at the debate over the composition of the Deuteronomistic History, without neglecting the outlook and theology of the work as a whole. Each page is packed with information that is, nevertheless, readily accessible. The formatting of the biblical text allows the reader to see at once the layers that the authors reconstruct, and their annotations clearly explain the reasons for their judgments. This is the place to begin the study of any passage in the Deuteronomistic History." -Steven L. McKenzie, Rhodes College Author of The Trouble with Kings "Antony F. Campbell and Mark O'Brien's monumental work represents critical thought at its best. Written in a style that is thoroughly imaginative and engaging without sacrificing the erudition of great scholarship, this work is not only researched meticulously but also offers a new approach to reading and understanding the Deuteronomistic History. This study challenges traditional methods and findings of historical criticism while attempting to be faithful to the text at hand in relation to making sense out of the present text. Comprehensive yet selective introductions to the books of Deuteronomy through 2 Kings set the stage for a thorough analysis of each book of the deuteronomistic historical books. Offering a major contribution to the biblical field, Campbell and O'Brien's work is sure to become a classic that will inform all future work to be done in this area." -Carol J. Dempsey, University of Portland Author of The Prophets (Fortress Press, 2000) Antony F. Campbell, S.J., is Professor of Old Testament at Jesuit Theological College, Melbourne, Australia. He is author of numerous works including A Study Companion to Old Testament Literature (2nd ed., 1993). Mark A. O'Brien, O.P., is Professor of Old Testament at Yarra Theological Union, Melbourne, Australia, and the author of The Deuteronomistic History Hypothesis (1989).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great source for studies relating to the Documentary Hypothesis  Apr 13, 2009
While the majority of scholars tend to focus specifically on the Torah when researching the Documentary Hypothesis, few go beyond and attempt to dissect the authorship under the portions we refer to as the Deuteronomistic History (Deuteronomy - 2 Kings). Aside from the research conducted by both Campbell and O'Brien, Richard Elliott Friedman is the only other that I am aware of who has ventures beyond the Torah in recent scholarships. Partly inspired from this work and Campbells'/O'Briens' other work: Sources of the Pentateuch, it had motivated me to pin-point a more exact date for the author we refer to as the Yahwist (J) in my published research: Biblical Origins: An Adopted Legacy. I highly recommend this book as it helps redefine our modern understanding of biblical authorship. It has proven to be a valuable source of biblical research which I routinely go back to reference in my personal research.
