The Pentateuch in the Twentieth Century: The Legacy of Julius Wellhausen

Synopsis

This book arises from the conviction that much in current research on the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament) needs to be subjected to rigorous scrutiny and that much is radically mistaken. Dr Nicholson argues that the work of Julius Wellhausen just over a century ago, though in need of revision and development, remains the securest basis for understanding the Pentateuch.
