A: The Book of Genesis was once thought to be historically accurate, giving it a special place in the Bible. Now that most of the book is regarded by critical scholars as a mixture of legend, myth and tradition, it is of little relevance to historians. However, it continues to be relevant to Jews and Christians (and, indirectly, Muslims) as the very basis of these religions. Without the Book of Genesis, these religions could scarcely… Read More

Because of the strong tradition that Moses was the author of Genesis, the best way to answer the question is to establish whether it was likely, or possible that Moses wrote the book then, if Moses was not really the author, consider who else might have written the book.
