Hermann Gunkel's groundbreaking "Scvpfun und Chaos," originally published in German in 1895, is here translated into English in its entirety for the very first time.

The first major historical study of creation and chaos motifs in the Bible, Gunkel's volume has exercised a profound influence on the development of modern biblical studies. Discovering a number of parallels between the biblical creation accounts and a Babylonian creation account, the "Enuma Elish," Gunkel argues that the ancient Babylonian traditions shaped the Hebrew people's perceptions both of God's creative activity at the beginning of time and of God's re-creative activity at the end of time.

Though some of Gunkel's arguments have not withstood the test of time, his "traditio-historical" methodology has become a major foundation of modern biblical scholarship.
