My first book:
Righteous Jehu and his Evil Heirs: The Deuteronomist’s Negative Perspective on Dynastic Succession. My doctoral dissertation was finished in June 2005 and this slightly modified version was published in 2007 by Oxford University Press. The retail price of $100 scares many people away, but as doctoral dissertations go, that’s cheap. Here’s what Robert R. Wilson of Yale says on the back cover, “…beautifully organized, fluently written, and strongly and logically argued. There is constant engagement with the scholarly literature on Kings, and Lamb has made excellent use of extra-biblical materials…In short, Lamb has made an major scholarly contribution in a neglected area. His work will…set the agenda for future debate.” You can buy it by clicking on it.
