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.

This groundbreaking volume contains carefully commissioned chapters that examine the presentation and role of children in the ancient world and specifically in ancient Jewish and Christian texts. The volume is structured in four parts. The first offers overviews of the key methodological approaches employed in the study of children in the biblical world, and the texts at hand. Following on from this three further sections examine key texts in which children or discussions of childhood are featured. These are presented along chronological lines, with sections on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, on the Intertestamental Literature, and on the New Testament and Early Christian Apocrypha. This chronological and canonical progression enables readers who read the entire volume sequentially to appreciate how understandings of children change over time. The book also provides a valuable resource for those reading selectively and focusing on a specific period or set of texts. It is relevant to scholars and students interested in the biblical world, as well as cross-disciplinary scholars interested in children in antiquity.

What does God think about children? What does this tell us about how we should view and treat children today? In re-examining what the Bible says about children, mission theologian Anne Richards argues that God finds children worthy of call, commission, blessing, healing and salvation. She argues that children are not only deeply woven into God's purposes but are also makers of God's story, 'providers to us of a language through which God's will for the creation is revealed.' Interweaving analysis of the Biblical material with stories about contemporary children and childhood, Anne Richards also touches on issues of infertility, consumerism and neglect.
