  abstract = {The recent attempt of John Van Seters to set the Abraham stories of Genesis in the mid-first millennium B. C. and to establish an exilic or early post-exilic date for the "Yahwist" is unsuccessful. His objections to an early second millennium background of the narratives are correct, but unconvincingly argued. His claims to relate Genesis to extrabiblical materials of the late Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian periods are as inadequate as those which have been presented by others for earlier periods. Van Seters fails to establish criteria for distinguishing oral from written traditions, and his attempt to establish a relative chronology for the Genesis narratives and to offer firm critical grounds for a new division of sources lacks any sound methodological basis.},
