There are a number of different social and political types that humans have lived in. Some include monarchies, democracies, tribal, pastoral, feudal (Middle Ages), communism. The author had to conjecture which type of political systems were in effect at that time. Which systems do you see in this book? How would the story be different if different political systems were included?
Some of the characters read or quote Bible passages; but these events are before the time of Abraham. Why would the author include these passages? How would individuals living at this time know anything about theology?
