Genesis is like an encyclopedia of life. Among other features, it highlights: the founding of civilization; harmony and disharmony; blessing; marriage and family; relative roles of women and men; larger communities (ethnic groups; the world); the ambivalence of cities; the centrality of journeying; the journey's context, between creation and providence.

Keywords:   blessing, city, communities, family, founding of civilization, harmony, journey, marriage, men, role, women
