dc.description.abstract"The fifth day is about to dawn. The universe is in harmony: time is charted, space is mapped out, land and sea masses are now ready; the luminaries, infinitely more convenient to fathom than is God, are now measures for human existence. As with those dreamers who lived in Qumran, we may be justified, therefore, in believing that it is only on this one day-the fourth-that the history of Israel, indeed our own history, truly begins."en_US
