Das Werden des Buches Hosea: Eine redaktionsgeschichtliche Untersuchung
Vielhauer, Roman

Berlin: de Gruyter, 2007 pp. ix + 272. $118.00

Series Information
Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft, 349

Description: The study examines the redaction history of the whole of the Book of Hosea; starting from a nucleus in Hosea 4-9, the book grew to its present form in a successive manner. Accordingly, the historical reviews from Hosea 9:10 on and the symbolic biographical actions in Hosea 1 and 3 represent later editorial layers. Thus a historical literary and theological link is formed spanning the period from the beginnings of prophetic writings in the 8th century BC to their reception in Qumran.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Book of the Twelve, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Form, Tradition and Redaction Criticism, Hosea
