Excerpt from The Myths of Israel, the Ancient Book of Genesis: With Analysis and Explanation of Its Composition Modern critical research into the sources and character of the ancient scriptures of the Hebrews leaves no reasonable doubt that the Book of Genesis, which was used as an introduction to the old Jewish law, is a composite production made up largely of myths and fragments of myths embodying the conceptions of the earliest writers of Israel, regarding the relations of that people to their deity. Study of it in this aspect gives it a new interest and significance, while persistence in the old view of its origin and meaning is in danger of sinking it from reverence to derision. This would be a calamity, because no more remarkable production of ancient genius has been preserved to us, and we may well be grateful for the devoutness, even the superstition, which has kept it through the ages from being buried in the special "sacred writings" of a particular race and a "peculiar" faith.
