What is reliable? That the stories were actually written down. It says nothing about whether the stories were true or not, only that these are the stories passed down, probably orally. They could be complete fictions.

"In a detailed, comprehensive, and entertaining manner, Kitchen draws on an unprecedented range of historical data from the ancient Near East -- the Bible's own world -- and uses it to soundly reassess both the biblical record and the critics who condemn it. Working back from the latest periods (for which hard evidence is readily available) to the remotest times, Kitchen systematically shows up the many failures of favored arguments against the Bible and marshals pertinent permanent evidence from antiquity's inscriptions and artifacts to demonstrate the basic honesty of the Old Testament writers. 

Enhanced with numerous tables, figures, and maps, On the Reliability of the Old Testament is a must-read for anyone interested in the question of biblical truth.  "

So it's accurate in saying parents should stone disobedient children?
We should also put to death any woman not a virgin at marriage.
Pork is unclean even though millions big people eat it every day
in one form or another and never suffer any kind of problem.

There are no gods unless we create them.
