The book examines the concept of creation in the ancient Near East, noting four differences from modern conceps: process, result, manner of reporting, and criterion of truth. It next surveys in detail ancient Near Eastern corpora: Sumerian, Akkadian, Egyptian, and "Canaanite" (mostly Ugaritic), giving the relevant ancient text in English translation. The second part of the book, "Creation Accounts in the Bible, looks at texts in Genesis 1-11, the Psalms, Isaiah 40-55, and the Wisdom literature. A conclusion summarizes the results and makes suggestions about interpreting the Bible.
