Product Description

Rethinking the documentary hypothesis, scholars are taking a fresh look at the theory that sources J, E, D, and P shaped the Pentateuch. Campbell and O'Brien offer an innovative alternative interpretation. Addressing the text's plurality and multiplicity, they demonstrate how ancient storytellers expanded on original narratives in order to make theological sense of their present situations. 176 pages, softcover from Westminster/John Knox.

Publisher's 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.
