Booknews
Provides a means of evaluating the various current and conflicting paradigms for the formation of the Pentateuch, by analyzing selected texts in Genesis to Numbers that express Yahweh's oath of the land to the ancestors, in order to determine their relative levels in relation to their surrounding contexts, in relation to each other, and in relation to their parallels in Deuteronomy. The findings generally support Wellhausen's conception, and some aspect of Noth's. Of possible interest to those studying the historical reconstruction, hermeneutics, or theology of the Old Testament. Double spaced. No subject index. Annotation c.
