Description - Creation in Jewish and Christian Tradition by Graf Henning Reventlow

Jewish and Christian perspectives on creation in the Bible, with contemporary theological, philosophical and political issues raised by the biblical-Jewish-Christian concepts of creation. This is the fifth volume produced by the Bochum-Tel Aviv seminar that explores various biblical and related themes from Jewish and Christian perspectives. Fourteen papers explore the notion of creation in the Bible and in Jewish and Christian theology. The very wide range of perspectives on creation include the Genesis accounts (Polak, Hoffman, Greenstein), creation in the Deuteronomistic History (Thiel), in Deutero-Isaiah (Polliack), Paul (Nebe) and Revelation (Toenges), with a review of creation in biblical theology by Reventlow. Ancient Egyptian concepts (Hasenfratz) and Israelite religion (Gruenwald) and the Qumran literature (Nitzan) are also covered. A final group of essays considers the 'unsolved problem' or Providence in creation (Link), the dialogue between theology and natural sciences (Grab) and the concept of creation in the World Council of Churches' initiative on Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation.
