I have assembled evidence in other books and articles to show the flaws in recent attacks on the hypothesis from the radical and traditional ends of the spectrum. In this article I want to concentrate on the positive arguments for it. For those who wish to see the evidence against those recent attacks, see the Appendix in Richard Elliott Friedman, The Hidden Book in the Bible (San Francisco: HarperSanFrancisco, 1998), pp. 350–378; and my articles “Solomon and the Great Histories,” in Ann Killebrew and Andrew Vaughn, eds., Jerusalem in Bible and Archaeology—The First Temple Period (Atlanta: Society of Biblical Literature, 2002); “An Essay on Method,” in Friedman and William Henry Propp, eds., Le-David Maskil, Biblical and Judaic Studies from the University of California, San Diego (Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 2003); “Some Recent Non-arguments Concerning the Documentary Hypothesis,” in Michael Fox et al., eds., Texts, Temples, and Traditions: A Tribute to Menahem Haran (Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 1996), pp. 87-101; and “Late for a Very Important Date,” BR, December 1993, pp. 12-16.
