The outline of an answer:
This article is a response to J A Loader's evaluation of my book, "A story
of two ways". It is argued that neither Loader nor any other scholar
referred to in the book were deliberately belittled or degraded. Every Old
Testament scholar mentioned in "Story" was depicted with the greatest
respect and a sincere attempt was made to understand each one. Loader is
therefore accused of a one-sided Loader-centric reading. To illustrate my
point some important aspects with regard to "Story" are highlighted: the
intention of the book, the way in which the book received its name, the
problems attached to contemporary history writing, etcetera. The main part
of the paper consists of an investigation into Loader's historical approach
to the Old Testament.
