The Formation of Genesis 1-11

Biblical and Other Precursors

David M. Carr

  • Synthesizes and contributes to scholarship on the most important texts in the Hebrew Bible
  • Draws on Genesis 1-11 to offer models for the formation of the Pentateuch
  • Provides new support for the theory that the bulk of Genesis 1-11 was created out of a combination of a Priestly source and an earlier non-Priestly source
