In this book, Cronauer proposes that a close source, composition, and redaction analysis of the Naboth material found in the books of Kings raises serious questions about the traditional interpretation of this material and of its dating to the time of Jehu. These questions have to do with the actual history behind this material, the history of the composition, redaction, transmission, and traditional dating of this material to the period of Jehu. He contends that there is sufficient evidence to challenge the traditional positions regarding these issues and to hypothesize a much more complex history of composition and redaction, and, a much latter dating for this material.
