Cause he said so

I would like to know what critical theories of composition for the 
Pentateuch (Tetrateuch, Hexateuch) are offered by those who reject 
the Documentary Hypothesis.  As far as I know, no one has does this 
with regard to Mosaic authorship, at least not to the level of 
criticism of the rival position.  My past has taught me that Mosaic 
authorship is propounded on theological grounds, that since Jesus 
referred to the Law of Moses, and Jesus can't be wrong, Moses had to 
have written it.  This position is then made more credible by mostly 
casting dispersions on the DH.  So if anyone can offer a scholarly 
alternative to the DH and its variants, I would like them to make 
some sort of case beyond Jesus said so.
