Dear B-Hebrew,
Although I am but an am ha'aretz, I agree with Elio that it is useful, particularly in the discussion of the "Book of the Wars of Yaweh."
Sincerely,
Art Gershman

  Karl and I have had some knock-down-drag-outs in the past, but in this case I have to agree 
  with him: this work is speculative to an unacceptable degree, and really doesn't solve 
  anything.  I would not characterize it as either useful or agreeable.
