Bacon's conclusion is given on p. lvii-lviii: "If there is one feature of the Documentary Theory which appears to be more offensive than another to the advocates of tradition it would seem to be the doctrine of repeated redactions of the text, which we have thus endeavored to set in outline before the reader. For some reason it appears to them incompatible with any view of divine authorship of the Bible. ... why should divine authorship be incompatible with an almost continuous process of human redaction? ... when deposits of the three great streams of religious thought of Ephraim, Judah and post-exilic Judaism gradually accumulate under providential control and guidance into the Bible of Jesus and the apostles, the resultant literary composite is more than ever entitled to be called the product of no mere human wisdom. It is seen to be a work and word of God, slowly-developed through many ages of his self-manifestation in Hebrew thought and literature."
