The State of Modern Biblical Studies

I just read an excellent article from Joshua Berman. He works through the state of modern Biblical Studies and finds many problems with it.

“A double standard permeates the field [of biblical studies]: when a scholar adduces evidence for the unity of a biblical text, he is liable to be labeled a conservative and dismissed; a scholar advancing an openly liberal agenda runs no comparable risk.”
