This presents for the layperson (i.e. non-specialist in Bible
studies) an encapsulation of modern scholarship on the Bible.
The term "scholarship" is misleaeding. The "higher criticism" is
based mostly on texutual analysis. Some of the claims made by this
"modern scholarship" have already been demolished by archaologists.
Alter makes a compelling case against some other claims.
