subject have generally moved away from this more recently. THe
problem is though that many of the recantations of this position have
only been seen in less poppular works (scholastic journals, etc) so
that books written for popular consumption by non-academicians tend
to STILL repete the same old points that just don't seem to hold up
anymore. This is not the fault of the scholors, it is just a downside
of the lack of more recent publications with critical perspective.
