The Five Books of Moses by Oswald T. Allis
New & Used
A re-examination of the modern theory that the Pentateuch is a late compilation from diverse and conflicting sources of authors and editors whose identity is completely unknown.
Biblical critics argued that the first five books of Scripture were not written by Moses, but were a later compilation from various conflicting sources by unknown authors and editors. Here Allis closely re-examines that critical theory and places before the reader the evidence for the unity and harmony of the five books of Moses.
