Summary expansion
  • Reconstructing from several problem-laden details, Garr (religious studies, U. of California-Santa Barbara) re-integrates the conflicting references to God in the Priestly and Yahwist biblical accounts of creation. He analyzes the non-Priestly cases in which God deploys the first person plural pronoun, describes the divine-human relationship through a study of prepositions and nouns, considers the character of the Priestly tradition, and explores how the relationship between players in P's story of human creation impacts the interpretation of the Priestly tradition. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
  • This book is about nothing less than Genesis 1, or human creation. Humanity, the author convincingly argues, is created within the Priestly tradition as a replacement of God's divine community; human creation marks the decisive moment that P's God separates himself from other gods and institutes monotheism. After discussing the references of God's self-inclusive yet plural first person speech and examining the ramifications of this speech pattern in other biblical texts, Randall Garr discusses the divine-human relationship as it is represented by carefully analysing the prepositions and nouns that characterize it. After highlighting some themes and theological concepts elaborated in Gen 1, it clearly situates the creation of humanity within the programmatic agenda of the Priestly tradition
