it was amazing
bookshelves: religion, bible-study

This is one of the best introductory books on the Documentary Hypothesis of the Books of Moses. According to Friedman modern biblical scholarship has deemed the first 5 books of the "Old Testament" to not be written by Moses (as tradition holds) but by several schools of thought labeled: "P" for the priestly source, "E" for the Elohimist source, "J" for the Yahwehist source, "D" for the Deuteronomy source, and "R" for the redactor source.
