This chapter summarizes the conclusions to Part II of the study. The books of Zephaniah and Nahum were written to support Josiah's program of religious reform and national restoration. Isaiah, Hosea, Amos, and Micah were redacted to support Josiah's program, and Jeremiah reformulated original Josian oracles to account for the later Babylonian exile. Habakkuk was written to address the problem of theodicy in the aftermath of Josiah's death.

Keywords:   Amos, Habakkuk, Hosea, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Micah, Nahum, theodicy, Zephaniah
