Editorial Reviews


"In The Historical Writings, Lamb and Leuchter have provided an accurate, honest, and wise account of the key interpretive issues related to the historical books of the Hebrew Bible. This volume helpfully orients its readers to the major issues while providing further opportunity for a closer reading of the details of these texts. It sets the standard for a new generation of introductions to the Bible." --Mark J. Boda, McMaster Divinity College

"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. Hutton, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"This is an insightful, lucid, and engaging new argument for one of the most influential modern approaches to reading the historical books of the Bible." --Jacob L. Wright, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
