Description: In this new book Crouch focuses on Deuteronomyís subversive intent, asking what would be required in order for Deuteronomy to successfully subvert either a specific Assyrian source or Assyrian ideology more generally. The book reconsiders the nature of the relationship between Deuteronomy and Assyria, Deuteronomyís relationship to ancient Near Eastern and biblical treaty and loyalty oath traditions, and the relevance of Deuteronomyís treaty affinities to discussions of its date.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Pentateuch, Deuteronomy, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Ancient Near Eastern History
