Tracing Genesis Through Ancient Culture
Did religion evolve from primitive nature worship, to belief in many gods, to belief in a single creator God?
Paul James-Griffiths challenges this view as he examines ancient cultures and religions. He shows how the texts and customs of multiple ancient cultures converge on the major events recorded in the early chapters of Genesis. Paul then argues these religions that diverge in many other ways must have had a common root - Genesis.
