Who Wrote the Bible?"Who Wrote the Bible?" By Richard Elliot Friedman http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060630353?ie=UTF8&tag=httpwwwgoodco-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0060630353&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2Who Wrote the Bible? by AmericanDreaming
I've long been interested in the origins of the Bible, specifically the Old Testament, and more specifically the five books of Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy,) since these were the texts that started it all. I wanted to see what the leading minds in biblical scholarship - not theologians, clergy or apologists, but actual academics - had to say on the subject.

"Where am I" he asked as he rubbed the back of his head. "Is...is this Hell?"

Peter jumped and turned around quickly trying to see who was speaking. Peter look over to see a raven perched on a rock by the side of the road. The raven has his back to Peter looking out into the distance of the vast and barren wasteland. The land all around them is completely flat. There are not even any hills or mountains. There is nothing but wide flat open land as far as the eye can see.
"There is certainly a great deal of vastness in nothingness, isn't there?" says the raven still with his back turned to Peter.
Peter anxiously takes a few steps closer to the rave
