Created in the Image of a Violent God? The Ethical Problem of the Conquest of Chaos in Biblical Creation Texts

Abstract
By its alternative depiction of God's non-violent creative power at the start of the biblical canon, Gen 1 signals the Creator's original intent for shalom and blessing at the outset of human history, prior to the rise of human (or divine) violence. Gen 1 constitutes a normative framework by which we may judge all the violence that pervades the rest of the Bible
