re: dating the bible:

an interesting convergence with the archaeological books just mentioned: 
corpus-based linguistic analysis of the biblical texts suggests the same 
relative chronologies. the monograph is in progress, but two published 
proof-of-concepts are available: both are also available in my papers 
directory at http://www.chass.utoronto.ca/~decaen/papers/ (the minimalism 
paper, and the JNWS paper on nunation).

i suggested the exodus narrative was composed ca. 500, for what it's 
worth....

shalom,
V
