His contribution to the "Guides for the Perplexed" series is a helpful summary of what can be gathered from the often scattered remarks in the ancient sources. One of the strengths of the book is that it quotes most of the relevant sources at length. The author rightly emphasizes that the ancient data are often open to various interpretations. His own reconstruction of the origin of the Bible is well argued, clear and readable; yet the author honestly warns the reader that there remain open questions, and there are areas in this history where other reconstructions may still be possible.' - Peter Balla, Head of the New Testament Department at the Faculty of Theology, Karoli Gaspar University of the Reformed Church in Hungary. --Sanford Lakoff
