A critical investigation into Old Testament history and the composition of the Hexateuch. Wellhausen devised a new paradigm which explained many of the apparent inconsistencies in the Biblical texts. In the process, he upset many traditionalists who didn't like the concept that the early portions of the Bible were the product of four separate authors. Or that the Levitical code was redacted into the text by the priestly class at a very late date in the evolution of the Bible.

This book has 556 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1885.
