Peter Kirk <peterkirk at qaya.org> wrote, inter alia,:

"My opinion would be that there are such people who 
believe that the Torah is generally accurate but not necessarily so in 
every historical detail. "
 
Some would define this somewhat differently: by comparing the biblical  narratives to external sources, and from internal evidence in the texts themselves, the  biblical history of Early  Israel can be accepted in broad outline. This is contray to the minimalists' or the fundamentalists' views. And furthermore, it has nothing whatsoever to do with "divine" innspiration, guidance or origin.
