W. Lee Humphreys uses recent developments in literary theory along with the Book of Genesis to show how God functions as a "character" in its narrative. Humphreys discusses the coherence and consistency of God as a character and the way in which God's character develops throughout the narrative. "The Character of God" brings us fresh insight in our reading of Genesis.

For me, Humphreys's "narrative appraisal" with its focus on the character roles offers a helpful perspective.
