Reinhard Kratz provides an introduction to the narrative works of the Old Testament, explaining their sources and the nature of their composition. In his textual criticism he relies on certain basic assumptions: a distinction between Priestly and non-Priestly text in the Pentateuch, the special position of Deuteronomy, a Deuteronomistic revision in the books of Joshua to Kings, and the literary dependence of Chronicles on the books of Samuel and Kings. Kratz expects his readers to “look at the texts of the Old Testament,” as they read the material presented in his book, especially as he describes the content of biblical passages.

    I'm pretty sure, that the "distinction between Priestly and non-Priestly text" (which is higher criticism) has not much to do with "textual criticism" (aka "lower criticism".)
