Product Description

Most recent studies of the biblical story of creation try to uncover its roots in ancient Near Eastern myths or its compatibility with modern science. In contract, this provocative new work by William Brown investigates how the various pictures of creation found in the Bible helped shape the ancient community's moral character. Bridging ethics and literary research, this interdiscilinary work demonstrates how certain creation traditions of the Old and New Testaments were developed from the community's moral imagination for the purpose of forming and preserving both Israel's and the early church's identity in the world. Brown also shows how his findings can help the church develop a greater sense of community today.

Publisher's Description

Recent studies of the biblical story of creation try to uncover its roots in ancient Near Eastern myths or its compatibility with modern science and ecology. In contrast, this work by William Brown investigates how the various pictures of creation found in Scripture helped shape the ancient faith community's moral character. Bridging the fields of biblical studies and ethics, this interdisciplinary work demonstrates how certain creation traditions of the Old and New Testaments were developed from the community's moral imagination for the purpose of forming and preserving both Israel's and the early church's identity in the world. Bringing to light insights largely overlooked by modern treatments of biblical ethics and creation, The Ethos of the Cosmos ends by recommending the formative power of creation for the contemporary church.
