In this provocative study, Zimmerman examines the creation myths of traditional cultures and compares them to Genesis in terms of symbolic content. While the Old Testament in general has only vague references to life in heaven, the myths discuss the notion of an after-life in a more vivid manner. Zimmerman makes the novel claim that Genesis and the creation myths of hunter-gatherers have a common source in the primeval revelation made by God. In this sense, Genesis owes much of its content to a revelation that has been kept alive by hunter-gatherers. Zimmerman also revisits the debate between fundamental creationists and evolutionists, contending that the Bible does not teach science but sacred doctrine.
