The study of Ezra-Nehemiah has been revolutionized in recent years by a growing rejection of the long-established belief that it was composed as part of the ChroniclerGCOs work. That shift in scholarly paradigms has re-opened many questions of origin and purpose, and this thesis attempts to establish an answer to the most important of these: the question of authorship. Here, Kyungjin Min argues that Ezra-Nehemiah most likely originated in a Levitical group that received Persian backing during the late-fifth century BCE and that valued the ideologies of decentralization of power, unity and cooperation among social groups, and dissatisfaction with the religious status quo.

"In the context of the globalization of biblical hermeneutics, it is good to see the careful work of a colleague, who-while being trained in Europe-is making a contribution to biblical studies in Asia. I hope that more of this academic interaction will be forthcoming in the future and that mainstream publishers will provide opportunities for scholars from Asia, Africa, South, or Central America to present their original contributions to the larger academic community." -Hebrew Studies 47 (2006)
