The essays published here are revised versions of papers presented in 2008 and 2009 in the section devoted to Israel and the Production and Reception of Authoritative Books in the Persian and Hellenistic Period at the annual meeting of the European Association of Biblical Studies. The various contributors explore what was authoritative for Chronicles and what authoritative might have meant for the Chronicler from different perspectives.
The volume includes chapters by Yairah Amit, Joseph Blenkinsopp, David J. Chalcraft, Philip R. Davies, David A. Glatt-Gilad, Louis Jonker, Mark Leuchter, Ingeborg Löwisch, Lynette Mitchell, Steven J. Schweitzer, Amber K. Warhurst, and the two editors, Diana V. Edelman, and Ehud Ben Zvi.
This volume will be of particular interest to scholars and students of biblical literature and all who are interested in ancient Israelite historiography, in Chronicles, in the intellectual history of Israel in the Persian/early Hellenistic period, and in issues of biblical proto-canonicity, authority, and criticism.
