Dr. Miller Publishes Article on Imagery in the Psalms

Dr. Robert Miller has published “What are the Nations doing in the Chaoskampf,” in Creation and Chaos: A Reconsideration of Hermann Gunkel’s Chaoskampf Hypothesis, edited by JoAnn Scurlock and Richard H. Beal. The volume is a publication of a conference held in 2011, and Dr. Miller’s essay examines the motif of all nations making pilgrimage to Jerusalem to worship God, which was added by the Psalms to a cluster of mythological images borrowed from Canaanite tradition.
