The Change in the Book of Genesis

I read through two versions of the Book of Genesis over the last couple of days: the New International and Amplified versions (both pretty straightforward). I was concentrating on the flow of the book through about chapter 24-25. By then, the book is pretty straightforward historical narrative (with strong overtones of being based in an oral tradition). I was, rather, observing how the book, in compressing the entire prehistorical period, moves from a more mythological or just-so feel, to that more straightforward narrative. As one moves from one This-is-the-Account section to the next, the transition is remarkable. :WM
