About the Book -- The International Critical Commentary (ICC): GENESIS

An electronic edition of Skinner's main work. The book reviews the structure and assumed sources of the text, brings out related Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, Arabic and other texts to clarify problems, and explains where he differs from other interpretations.

His discussion is the most detailed of those on this page, and, perhaps because of the then still-widespread disagreement over the documentary hypothesis, includes extensive references to other proponents of it.
