Reflection Questions

  • To what extent do you agree or disagree with the statement that “the Deuteronomist's theological perspective impacts his historical presentation”?

  • Choose three of what you consider to be the most significant of Pierson's factors related to the value of studying history. How does Pierson suggest that each of the three factors contributes to the study of history?
