Here are indispensable tools for the student of Pentateuchal source analysis:

--The complete NRSV text of the Priestly document, the Yahwist narrative, the Elohist texts, and non-source texts of the Pentateuch as identified by Martin Noth
--Introductions that review the history of source-oriented research and the current debate over the origin and growth of the Pentateuch
--Annotations that help with the understanding of source-critical decisions
--Studies of three composite texts that exemplify the nature of the problem and possible approaches to a solution.
