Scholars have long attempted to explain how the Pentateuch was put together. According to the predominant theory--the documentary hypothesis--the material in these books, which varies in historical and theological points of view, came from four hypothetical sources designated as J, E, D, and P. Answering the increasing scholarly call to rethink this theory, Antony Campbell and Mark O'Brien offer a revolutionary explanation for the development of plurality and multiplicity within the text.

Antony F. Campbell, S. J. is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Jesuit Theological College within the United Faculty of Theology in Parkville, Australia. He has coauthored books such as Sources of the Pentateuch and Unfolding the Deuteronomistic History.


Mark A. O'Brien, OP is the Dominican Regent of Studies and Prior of St Dominic's, East Camberwell, Australia. He is the author of a number of books in biblical studies, including Unfolding the Deuteronomistic History: Origins, Upgrades, Present Text with Antony Campbell SJ.

Review of Biblical LiteratureMarch 2006"I found this book stimulating....But the book also presents a number of significant obstaclesand problems."--Thomas B. Dozeman, United Theological Seminary,Trotwood, Ohio
Review of Biblical LiteratureMarch 2006"This short study contains very interesting observations and ideas, but it is also difficultto understand because the authors tend to leave somany options open...[A]n interesting book that should be read by scholars interested in pentateuchal issues. I would not recommend it, however, as a handbook."--Thomas Romer, University of Lausanne,Laussane, Switzerland
The Bible Today(May/June 2006)"Students of the Pentateuch will find this studyfascinating and enlightening."
