Yehezkel Kaufman, modern Israel’s foremost biblical scholar, composed this monograph in connection with his two volumes of commentary on the books of Joshua and Judges. He takes issue with the view that these books originated in late monarchic times, centuries removed from the events they relate and hence of little historical worth. He criticizes in detail the literary arguments on which that view is based, contending that, on the contrary, these books are based on, and incorporate, pre-monarchic sources attesting to the earliest phrase of the religion of ancient Israel.
