Fascinating article on Job from the Straight Dope, where the head guy is clearly an atheist. It doesn’t show in this article, written by a staff member.

One of the things I’m grateful for regarding my Catholic education was the exposure to academic and scholarly views on Scripture. Just, I was introduced to a bunch of ideas like the different authors of the Old Testament (Yahwist, Elohist, Priestly writer, Deuteronomist… are there more? Is this right? Can’t remember) and how everything was put together. Ideas on the different authors of Isaiah (which the article briefly alludes to) and other stuff. I don’t know, it’s just interesting to me and I think it’s something most evangelicals don’t know anything about.
