Creation

Biblical Theologies in the Context of the Ancient Near East

Othmar Keel and Silvia Schroer

Othmar Keel has become well known as the author of masterly studies on the iconography and texts of the ANE and their relationship to the text of the Hebrew Bible. In this volume, he partners with Silvia Schroer to assemble ANE texts and art that bears on the idea of creation. The result is a convenient assemblage of texts and iconographical data that may be studied in concert, often leading to being able to see old texts in new ways. As with much of this Swiss scholar’s work, this new volume will prove to be a resource for all who wish to study the biblical theology of creation against its wider background.
