The Pentateuch: Its Origin and Authorship

This week’s additions to the Jimmie Beller Memorial eLibrary all have to do with defending the Bible against the skeptics who make claims that it is uninspired and/or severely corrupted.

Back in the late 1800s, it was popular for atheists to go around making claims that the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible) was full of mistakes and corruptions, and wasn’t even written until many years after Moses was dead.  By this, they tried to prove that it (1) wasn’t from God and that (2) it wasn’t written when/by whom it was claimed.

In response to these speeches, several responses were written by different men from different church backgrounds.  One such response is today’s free offering.  Written by H.L. Hastings, editor of “The Christian” newspaper and the “Anti-Infidel Library,” this booklet contains several solid lines of evidence showing the divine origin of Genesis through Deuteronomy, and also spends a lengthy chapter showing that the claims of mistakes and corruptions are overblown.

Originally printed in April of 1894 as part of the “Anti-Infidel Library,” we present to you
