The Double Redaction of the Deuteronomistic History is Richard D. Nelson’s important study of the double redaction hypothesis. In this important work, Nelson re-examines Martin Noth’s hypothesis, and attempts to clarify and further the double redaction thesis. He devotes special attention to key texts in the Deuteronomistic history—in Judges and Kings, in particular—which support the double redactor hypothesis. Although much of the volume examines the structural and linguistic data, Nelson concludes with both the theological implications of double redaction, as well as the interpretive way forward.
