Product Description

"It is a strange fact that we have never known with certainty who produced the book that has played such a central role in our civilization," writes Friedman, a foremost Bible scholar. From this point he begins an investigation and analysis that reads as compellingly as a good detective story. Focusing on the central books of the Old Testament--Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy--he draws upon biblical and archaeological evidence to make a convincing argument for the identities of their authors. In the process he paints a vivid picture of the world of the Bible--its politics, history, and personalities. The result is a marvel of scholarship that sheds a new and enriching light on our understanding of the Bible as literature, history, and sacred text.

    It is a great book, it looks at the Old Testament from an investigative point of view, very in depth and informative. You will not study the Bible the same way, you will study with a new found depth and understanding if the text.

    This book is very readable. The nonscholar will have no trouble understanding his theme. However, Friedman is not a conservative scholar. The book defends his version of the Documentary Hypothesis, which denies that Moses wrote the Pentateuch, a point not clear in the CBD's description.
