Review quote

Hendel lucidly and sharply discusses general principles of textual criticism, in dialogue with the specialists, and applies these principles to the establishing of an 'eclectic' critical text of Genesis 1-11. There are many delightful nuggets. In many ways the book is a model which students learning textual criticism could profitably work with. * R.W.L.
