This response to John William Colenso’s The Pentateuch and the Book of Joshua Critically Examined systematically moves through the book of Exodus and addresses the difficulties that Colenso highlighted in his controversial work. Seventeen of the chapters directly answer the arguments of Bishop Colenso, the eighteenth and nineteenth chapters review the numerical and historical objections to the Pentateuch, and chapters 20 to 22 constitute an argument for the truth and Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch, deduced from the Psalms, the prophets, and the gospels.
