This chapter illustrates how historical-critical discussions concerning the role of the Documentary Hypothesis and the Deuteronomistic Historian of the Hebrew Bible have challenged traditional readings of scriptural authorship, authority, and canonization. Creative tensions emerge from viewing sacred scriptural text as an unharmonized compilation of competing, multivocal narratives. Biblical scholarship provides a model for Latter-day Saints to accept multiple, authoritative, competing historical narratives.

Keywords:   Hebrew Bible, Documentary Hypothesis, Deuteronomistic Historian, canon formation, scriptural authorship, multivocality
