The delay of the Parousia—the anticipated return of Christ—is an issue that has troubled theology since the late writings of the New Testament.

Noble argues that conventional characterizations of the Priestly writers' theology have failed to take into account the significance of these two "non-chosen" figures. Noble carefully examines their roles and depictions in Genesis and concludes that Ishmael is a key figure whose ambiguous status requires a rethinking of the goals and values of the Priestly work.
