A very interesting and readable investigation of the Pentateuch's various authors. According to Friedman, the myriad contradictions and anachronisms in the Bible betray the political conflicts and warring propaganda in pre-monarchal Israel as well as the conflict between the later-generation editors/redactors and the ingrained oral traditions precluding them from amending such contradictions. Some of the content, such as IDing the exact author of Deuteronomy, while logically argued and decently [...]

I've enjoyed every book I've read by Friedman, and this is no exception. Granted, he didn't contribute much to the text in the way of words themselves, after all, this is just the Pentateuch with color coding; however, his translation is marvelous and his insight is honest. The documentary hypothesis is still contested in some circles, but reading each of the 4 supposed authors as a whole, without the others surrounding it provides strong evidence. Every portion is able to easily be a continuous [...]

If you're averse to reading the Bible, than this book might not be for you. But if, on the other hand, you are curious as to how the Bible was put together, and the many different sources which were used for it, than this book is an eye opener. With great care, Richard Elliott Friedman translates the Pentateuch from Hebrew, and then introduces us to the hypothesis that the Pentateuch derives from four (at least) identified sources, which were woven together by various redactors, in an attempt to [...]

A long awaited arrival of a Documentary Hypothesis (DH) outlined Torah. Friedman, a disciple and student of Frank Cross (a colossus in biblical scholarship), continues to make a big name for himself in the ranks of bible scholars with this work. The book consists of an introduction, in which Friedman submits the evidence for the DH and addresses why some people are under the misguided impression that the DH is no longer accepted as accurate, and the Torah itself. The Torah is neatly presented wi [...]

Friedman's opening two chapters are amazingly succinct. In a very few pages, Friedman lays out a compelling case for what is known as the Documentary Hypothesis. This is the widely accepted theory that the first five books of the Bible are a compilation of four main documents, known by the letters J, E, P, and D, which were woven together by later editors known as Redactors.What does it matter whether you buy into the idea that sources by J, P, E, and D form the Pentateuch? Because, if you are s [...]

This book was excellent. It has taken me some time to finish, not Richard's work in the book as much as the texts. It took some time to get through Leviticus and Deuteronomy. My only thing I wish is that this book was longer. I wish Friedman gave us more. This book is excellent if you want to examine sources of the texts, and if you are into understanding the details of the Five Books of Moses. I loved this book!

The first five books of the Bible are traditionally understood to have been written by Moses. In places, Jesus appears to confirm this. Most critical Bible scholars since the late 19th-century, however, have recognized at least four different contributors of the books of Moses:A text known as J was composed during the period when the kingdoms of Israel and Judah were divided. J was written by an author living in the southern kingdom. It’s known as J because it refers to God by the name of YHWH [...]

This is exactly what I have been looking for: a framework for reading the narrative in the Pentateuch. I've long attributed the difficulty in reading OT narratives to the King James English. I now see that as only one contributing factor. The larger difficulty is the repetitive and contradicting details that stem from interwoven sources. And though I've read enough to know about J, E, and P and the different flavors of each, I still have a hard time picking them out as I read through the scriptu [...]

I found this book very interesting. It looks at the first five books of the Bible and has it written in different colors to represent the different authors. It was interesting to read the whole thing through in just one color at a time and still see the continuity in the stories. It was especially interesting to read stories with which I am familiar and knowing what is supposed to happen and finding that half the story is written by one source and the other half by another. Then I had to go back [...]

The footnotes are interesting, and the visual identification of each individual author's contributions serves to make sense of some of the contradictions and repetitive phrases throughout the stories.

An excellent book to learn the source of different sections of the first five books of Moses in the Bible. Through this evidence, one can easily determine what the priests wrote into the Bible.
