This volume critically focuses on the sources and authorship of the book of Exodus, extending its analysis to the end of the Pentateuch. Benjamin Bacon divides his work into three sections: an in-depth introduction to the subject, textual analysis, and sources reconstructed.
This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, or anyone studying the book of Exodus. With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to the Greek and Hebrew texts and English translations in your library. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study.
His volume is a credit to American scholarship in a field where laborious research is required before a worthy result is reached and is an excellent example of modern scientific methods in Biblical criticism.
