Bible-based Christianity claims to be a revelation from God, in fact it claims to comprise the most comprehensive collection of truths concerning the nature and purposes of God, and the nature and destiny of mankind that has ever been revealed. It claims that this revelation was made to mankind by Divinely Inspired, and therefore, utterly inerrant writings that have been transmitted to us through what is popularly known as The New Testament. However, this collection of documents rests upon the previously existing collection of documents which comprise the Hebrew Canon, referred to by Christians as the Old Testament, and therefore is itself acutely vulnerable to any assault made upon the Hebrew Canon, or Old Testament. The very foundation of the Hebrew Canon, in terms of the claimed sequence of writing, historical events narrated, and theological importance, is the Torah, or Pentateuch, or Five-Books-Of-Moses; namely, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is not surprising then, that while there is continuing debate about the so-called Synoptic Problem, the authorship and placement of the Pastoral Epistles, the provenance of the Book of Daniel, the authorship of the Book of Isaiah, and many of the Psalms, it is the Pentateuch that has been the target of the most unremitting assaults of sceptics and Critics down the years, and the Book of Genesis has suffered the most brutal of these attacks. It is these assaults upon the Pentateuch that form the subject of this book.

Author Biography

The author was born in 1953 into an Anglo-Irish family, was educated at a private Roman Catholic school, attended Mass regularly, served as an altar-boy, and received Confirmation at the age of eleven. By his late teens he had rejected Catholicism and belief in God, for the occult, and was to be trained by a local witch. Before this training could begin he was taken badly ill and nearly died. During this crisis, he prayed for the first time in years, and promised to turn back to God if He would but spare his life. At that moment his recovery began, and he started to search for God and His Truth. Through many different incidents, by God's Grace, he was led to an unqualified and most literal acceptance of the Scriptures, and of the Atonement wrought by Christ for our forgiveness, pardon, justification, and sanctification. He is now an honorary member of the Academic Faculty of The European Theological Seminary and College Of The Bible, in the capacity of Researcher and Examiner.
