Excerpt: "Beginning with the eighteenth century and continuing to the present certain Biblical scholars segmented the Pentateuch into various documents as to its origin. They claimed the methods of inquiry and principles, by which they determined the different sources used to write the Pentateuch, were valid. This work was known as Biblical Higher Criticism, otherwise known as just, Higher Criticism. Conservative Biblical scholarship has thoroughly disagreed with the findings of Destructive Higher Criticism but little has been written on the methods or principles of inquiry and their application. Most conservative attacks have been at the results rather than investigation of methods."
