Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Trouble with Kings contains the table of contents and foreword. The book discusses that the story of the theory of the Deuteronomistic History (DH) is itself a telling review (cf. Radjawane 1973; Weippert 1985). It begins with the great biblical scholar, Martin Noth, who established the theory of the DH in the field in the first half of a monograph published in 1943. That monograph, with its inimitably German title, has since become a classic in the study of the Hebrew Bible because it forever changed the way that scholars regard the "historical books" of the Bible. Noth dated the DH to the middle of the sixth century B. C. E. and proposed that its purpose was to show that the Babylonian exiles were suffering for centuries of decline in Israel's loyalty to its God, Yahweh.

Keywords: Deuteronomistic History (DH); Martin Noth
