    I wouldn't consider this a book for beginners or those who are new to what I consider "deep bible study". The author presents a lot of theories from other sources. Most of the theories seem like they are trying to disprove the scripture found in the first 5 books. NOW, I think a more advanced scholar could use this book to practice apologetics. Some of the theories suggest that, the Pentateuch was written postexilic, that it was folklore, that the Israelites were few in number during the exodus and a host of other contradictions. I truly believe, with a good conscience that I have presented this review honestly and without contempt. I seek the truth in my studies and feel as though I did not find it, in this book.
