Literary History of the Old Testament

Peter Enns discusses this question a bit in order to link to a chart (PDF) put together by Trent C. Butler in his review of Konrad Schmid’s  The Old Testament: A Literary History. As Enns points out, the details are definitely open to scholarly debate, but nobody really doubts that something like what Schmid proposes is what actually happened. Namely, the books of the Old Testament had a long prehistory before they came to be written down in the form we have them today.
