Author / Artist: Friedman, Richard Elliott

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.
