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.
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.
