Editorial Reviews

"Sweeney shows again the importance of the Josianic period for the history of literature and religion in Judah in a very impressive way. He correctly show that Deuteronomy was in its substance a pre-exilic program which became effective in exilic and postexilic times. Sweeney has written animportant book and contribution to Old Testament scholarship."-- SHOFAR
