Who Wrote the Bible? (1987)[1] is a book by biblical scholar Richard Elliott Friedman. The book is a general audience explanation of the Documentary Hypothesis of the composition of the Old Testament. In it, Friedman expands upon Julius Wellhausen's model, theorizing that the P (Priestly) source was written earlier than commonly accepted, during the reign of King Hezekiah (715-687 BCE).
