For many years now, a debate has raged among literary scholars as to who wrote the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible. Within that debate, two sides with irreconcilably different viewpoints have battled for the truth. The result of this discourse will be far-reaching, threatening the foundations of the world's three greatest religions. For Christianity, if Moses did not write the Pentateuch, then Jesus was misled, and the faith of many are in jeopardy. If several editors wrote and put together those books at different times as Dr. Richard Elliott Friedman argues in his book, Who Wrote the Bible (1987), then it is possible that Abraham was a fictional character and the faiths of Judaism and Islam have a fictional origin. In Who Really Wrote the Bible, author Clayton Ford sifts through the logical and literary fallacies put forth as evidence by those who would condemn the Pentateuch's authenticity. By following through the dissenters' reasoning, with copious references to their own material, he brings light to how these scholars have tied themselves up in the knots of their own criticism. Where Moses's detractors see inconsistency and evidence for multiple authors, Ford finds examples of elaborate harmony, consistency, and intricate storytelling. Where they find dramatically different styles, Ford shows an educated, single author with an ability to alter formats, as evidenced in other examples from antiquity.
