The Storm-God in the Ancient Near East

Overview

In this comprehensive study of a common deity found in the ancient Near East, Alberto R. W. Green brings together evidence from the worlds of myth, iconography, and literature, arriving at a new synthesis of the place of the Storm-god. He finds that the Storm-god was the force primarily responsible for major areas of human concern. Then, Green traces these motifs through the Mesopotamian, Anatolian, Syrian, and Levantine regions. Ultimately, Green shows that Yahweh can be identified as a unique version of a storm-god, as the creator of all and the self-existing God who needs no other.
