In 1943, the famous Old Testament scholar, Martin Noth, published the monograph in which he established the hypothesis of a Deuteronomistic History and gave his treatment of the Chronicler’s History. It quickly became one of the classics in the field and is probably Noth’s most enduring legacy. This book brings together essays from an international symposium of scholars celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Noth’s important volume and reviewing his other contributions to Old Testament study.

Part one discusses Noth’s life and work, his view of the Deuteronomistic History and the Chronicler’s History, his contributions to the history of Israel, traditional criticism, and Old Testament theology, as well as reflections on Noth’s impact on current and future study. Part two analyzes the scholarship over the past fifty years on Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, 1–2 Samuel, and 1–2 Kings.
