"In this ambitious volume, Leuchter and Lamb offer a sophisticated introduction to ancient Israel's historical self-presentation. These well-established scholars provide useful and lively discussions of JoshuaKings, EzraNehemiah, and Chronicles, exploring the composition, literary structure and themes, and sociohistorical setting of each book. Self-aware thematic and historical summaries are paired with insightful literary commentaries, guiding readers through the text s dominant concerns and constituent units. This volume promises to usher a generation of students through the most pressing questions in academic study of the Bible's historical literature in an approachable, accessible format." --Jeremy M.
