Van Seters Abraham in History and Tradition (1975) marked the first major criticisms of what had been for many a consensus (at least among American scholars) about the historicity of the biblical text. Over the next fifteen to twenty years there were major changes in how the historicity of ancient Israel and Judah was approached.
