This substantial and important volume provides the evidential underpinning for Professor Carr?s Introduction to the Old Testament, which I reviewed favourably in last year?s Chronicle. It is a book which no serious student or teacher of the OT will be able to ignore ? a well-argued attempt to identify a valid methodology for dating OT material by delineating a ?profile? for each period and then seeing which OT books or blocks of material seem most likely to have derived from it.
