The Santal and the Biblical Creation Tradition
Anthropological & Theological Reflections
Timotheas Hembrom offers a brief and lucid introduction to the lifestyle and belief system of the Santals, showing that though they are a people of no scripture, they have as much knowledge about God the creator as the people pf scriptures. Hembrom also conducts an exegetical study and compares the Biblical and the Santal’s creation narratives. His findings and conclusions prove to be relevant for any reader interested in faith and the origin of religion.
This book is a reflection for his love for words and language, and what he is at the core – a Santal, an Adivasi and a Theologian.
