An interdisciplinary collection for scholars and students interested in the connections between myth and scripture

In this collection scholars suggest that using 'myth' creates a framework within which to set biblical writings in both cultural and literary comparative contexts. Reading biblical accounts alongside the religious narratives of other ancient civilizations reveals what is commonplace and shared among them. The fruit of such work widens and enriches our understanding of the nature and character of biblical texts, and the results provide fresh evidence for how biblical writings became 'scripture.'
