Format: Hardcover
Anyone looking for this book doesn't need to be convinced of its enormous contribution to Old Testament Biblical Theology and conservative scholarship. Kline is careful and articulate leveraging his Ancient Near-Eastern academic background to provide much needed context for Old Testament studies. Although Kline is not easy reading, I do not hesitate to recommend all of his works.

In Brief:
The recent discovery of Ancient Near Eastern documents was providing significant new material for Biblical studies. Mendenhall and D.J. Wiseman were some early conservative scholars who published works in the area of covenant treaties in the 1950's. The publication of the material in Treaty of the Great King shortly followed along with the arrival of other important publications such as Treaty and Covenant by D. McCarthy and the Tyndale press ANE Treaties and the Old Testament by J.A. Thompson.

A primary motivation for this area of scholarship was to provide evidence that Mosaic documents were cohesive literary units with historic veracity. Deuteronomy was singled out by Kline as having a strong resemblance to covenant structures of the Ancient Near East contra the various liberal hypotheses built upon JEDP, which suggest significant redaction of the Pentateuch narrative as late as 7th century BC.

In his book Treaty of the Great King, Kline gives a detailed analysis and strong evidence for supporting the correlation of Deuteronomy as being a legal document between Israel and YHWH that was patterned after Ancient Near-Eastern treaties with Moses as its primary compiler. Kline also provides numerous and valuable bibliographic footnotes.
