We live in an age and society where we like to know who is responsible for what we are hearing or reading. It makes a difference to us. Authorship is important.
But, it was not always so. During the time of the Old Testament’s composition, the concerns over authorship were not present. They did not assess credibility the way we do. No doubt this is one reason why the authors are not always named in much of the Old Testament.
Join Mark Lanier as we set out various issues important to the authorship debate on Genesis. In the process, we must recognize both our goals and our limitations.
