Description

Scholars have long attempted to explain how the Pentateuch was put together. According to the predominant theory--the documentary hypothesis--the material in these books, which varies in historical and theological points of view, came from four hypothetical sources designated as J, E, D, and P. Answering the increasing scholarly call to rethink this theory, Antony Campbell and Mark O'Brien offer a revolutionary explanation for the development of plurality and multiplicity within the text.

Reviews

Review of Biblical Literature March 2006 "I found this book stimulating....But the book also presents a number of significant obstacles and problems." --Thomas B. Dozeman, United Theological Seminary, Trotwood, Ohio
Review of Biblical Literature March 2006 "This short study contains very interesting observations and ideas, but it is also difficult to understand because the authors tend to leave so many options open...[A]n interesting book that should be read by scholars interested in pentateuchal issues. I would not recommend it, however, as a handbook." --Thomas Romer, University of Lausanne, Laussane, Switzerland
The Bible Today (May/June 2006) "Students of the Pentateuch will find this study fascinating and enlightening."
