Item Description...
In this volume nineteen biblical scholars collaborate to provide an informed and focused treatment of biblical perspectives on children and childhood. Looking at the Bible through the "lens" of the child exposes new aspects of biblical texts and themes. Some of the authors focus on selected biblical texts - Genesis, Proverbs, Mark, and more - while others examine such biblical themes as training and disciplining, children and the image of God, the metaphor of Israel as a child, and so on. In discussing a vast array of themes and questions, the chapters also invite readers to reconsider the roles that children can or should play in religious communities today.

Publishers Description
Featuring 16 biblical scholars including Walter Brueggemann and Terence E. Fretheim, this book provides an informed and focused study of biblical perspectives in childhood studies. It examines the metaphor of Israel as a child, children and the image of God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insightful  Jul 12, 2009
This book may be more than most casual readers would choose to dive into but it's full of profound insights with great potential to take our thinking about children in the kingdom of God down some important, lesser trod paths. The authors, skilled in their understanding of the culture and language of the time, thoughtfully explore the scriptures looking for children, their role, their contributions, and their place in God's story (something most scholars haven't done). Though it would be a long study, 18 chapters, this book would be an interesting book for group discussion among church leaders, children's ministry workers, parents or any combination. It would be a wonderful tool for a seminary class or a dedicated group of non-professionals to use for a fascinating Bible study.
