      Dear Jon,

      The correct question is: if the Deuteronomistic Writings was not part of the Bible, would it be treated etc.

      Apart from this Brian did not address Deuteronomistic writings as such but more specifically the theory of the law book said to be found in the temple in the time of Josiah. The identification of this book with Deuteronomy or a part of it is very old in biblical scholarship, and because Alt approved it, it became "law".

      If the Deuteronomistic writings had made no reference to a god, would
      they be treated any different than the works of Manetho, Josephus,
      Herodotus or Homer?
      At what point do the DtH writings lose credibility, and how credible
      is that point of departure?
