Abstract:

The study of children in the Bible and the biblical world speaks to a range of audiences; children are members of communities past and present, and the Bible continues to shape cultures and the lives of individuals worldwide. This volume provides a wealth of resources, taking both biblical studies and child-focused interdisciplinary research to new levels. Initial chapters provide a valuable orientation to the significance of the study of children and childhood in the biblical world and to recent advances in this rapidly growing area of research. Subsequent contributions display a range of creative methodological approaches, offering new insights into biblical and early Christian texts and the history of childhood in the ancient Near East.
