ENRICH-0636 – 1 Night In-Person: Book of Genesis (ENRICH-0636_BGEN)

Designing Creation: Narrative Strategies in the Opening Chapters of Genesis

The creation story in Genesis is arguably the most widely known mythic narrative in the history of the Western tradition. But what's really there when we take a look under the hood? Join Dr. Richard Sacks, who spent four decades teaching ancient texts and myths at Columbia University, for a close examination of the opening chapters of the Bible's first book, and the complex—and often troubling—narrative details with which it confronts us in our eternal quest to understand our human condition.
