About the Author

Ernest Nicholson is Provost of Oriel College, Oxford


Review from previous edition the publication of this book is quite welcome. Nicholson does not merely survey the history of the field ... He reviews many studies in great detail and subjects their assumptions, their reasoning, and their treatment of sample passages to a close analysis. This well-written book is both crucial reading for Pentateuch specialists and an excellent aid for other biblicists who need to keep abreast of the revolutions and counter-revolutions that have taken place in Pentateuchal criticism. * Benjamin D. Sommer, Review of Biblical Literature. *
This book ... treats the gamut of modern Christian scholarship on the Pentateuch in the last two centuries, and this comprehensive approach proves extremely useful. * Benjamin D. Sommer, Review of Biblical Literature. *
the book genuinely helps make recent challenges to the Documentary Hypothesis more accessible even as it defends the older view. * Benjamin D. Sommer, Review of Biblical Literature. *
Regardless of whether one agrees with Nicholson's judgements ... his comprehensive analysis of modern Christian scholarship on the Pentateuch renders this book crucial to all further discussion; the book must be placed on reading lists for all graduate students and scholars.
Throughout the book he is in dialogue with the major scholars in the biblical field. Though most of them are German, their positions are carefully explained so that the reader will readily understand the argument ... the book should be in theological libraries. * The Bible Today, vol 37, No 5 September/October 1999 *
It is a clearly written description of a complicated topic. The volume is a significant contribution to contemporary Pentateuchal studies. * W. H. Bellinger, Jr, Religious Studies Review *
