Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Compositional Strategy of the Book of Judges: An Inductive, Rhetorical Study contains the table of contents, and the abbreviations. The book represents an inductive, literary/rhetorical analysis of the book of Judges to determine whether recent synchronic approaches that read the book as an integrated whole are indeed justified. As possible rhetorical links connecting Judges' prologue (1:1-2:5), epilogue (17:1-21:25), and central section (2:6-16:31) are examined in detail and the implications of such links carefully considered, the author concludes that, contrary to the consensus view that sees the central section of Judges as a part of Deuteronomistic History and the prologue and epilogue as later additions, the book in its current form may have been a unified composition of a single creative author.

Keywords: book of Judges; Deuteronomistic History
