My interest in creation themes of the ancient Near East grew out of a Wisdom Literature class at Catholic Theological Union. I am grateful to Dianne Bergant for introducing me to the general topic. Under her direction, I began to read the literature comparing Enuma elish and Genesis 1. Also, to Dianne goes a vote of thanks for her enthusiasm for teaching and her role as model to other women who are interested in theology.
