Interactive collection of biblical commentaries authored or edited by two of the most influential Biblical scholars of the 20th century, one Christian and one Jew, Samuel R. Driver and Umberto Moshe Cassuto.
SAMUEL ROLLES DRIVER, an English Christian Hebraist, who was one of the foremost champions of Biblical criticism. Driver has always taken a conservative view, showing much moderation and sympathy with the orthodox position; he was often attacked both from the Left and the Right in his field.
UMBERTO MOSHE CASSUTO (Moses David; 1883–1951), Italian historian, scholar of
Bible and Semitics. While appreciating the scholarly basis of Higher Criticism, he opposed the Graf-Wellhausen documentory theory. His expositions focused on the
existing text, analyzing its spiritual and ethical teachings, pointing out its
literary devices, and discussing its exegetical problems, on which he brought to
bear comparative literary and linguistic material whenever possible.

Although originally published more then 50 years ago, this little Cassuto's book is still probably the best, most focused attack on Wellhausen's Documentary Hypothesis and a powerful defense of the integrity of the biblical text.
The Book of Exodus sets before us, as the Hebrews of later ages told it, and in the vivid, picturesque style which the best Jewish historians could always command, the story of the deliverance from Egypt.
