T&T Clark Handbook of Children in the Bible and the Biblical World

  • Editors: Sharon Betsworth and Julie Faith Parker
  • Series: T&T Clark Handbooks
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2019
  • Pages: 496

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This ground-breaking volume examines the presentation and role of children in the ancient world, and specifically in ancient Jewish and Christian texts. With carefully commissioned chapters that follow chronological and canonical progression, a sequential reading of this book enables deeper appreciation of how understandings of children change over time.

Divided into four sections, this handbook first offers an overview of key methodological approaches employed in the study of children in the biblical world, and the texts at hand. Three further sections examine crucial texts in which children or discussions of childhood are featured; presented along chronological lines, with sections on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, the Intertestamental Literature, and the New Testament and Early Christian Apocrypha. Relevant not only to biblical studies but also cross-disciplinary scholars interested in children in antiquity.

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

T&T Clark Handbook of the Old Testament: An Introduction to the Literature, Religion and History of the Old Testament

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The T&T Clark Handbook of the Old Testament is a comprehensive introduction and guide to OT studies. This resource begins by presenting the methods and sources of OT studies and then presents a thorough overview of the biblical text as well as relevant discoveries and research in archaeology, ancient extrabiblical texts, and iconography. It explores varying exegetical methods and approaches including historical criticism, canonical criticism, the social scientific method, and feminist and liberation theologies. Methods in archaeology, Hebrew epigraphy, and iconography are also covered.

The second section is devoted to the history and religious history of Ancient Israel. Introductory matters, such as fundamental terminology and definitions, ethnic identity, ancestors and the dead, geography, and time reckoning are explicated before the book moves on to a historical survey from the Iron Age to the early Roman period.

The heart of the book is a detailed survey of the Hebrew canonical books. The discussion for each book includes the biblical presentation and content, problems arising from the history of literary analysis and research, origin and development of the writing, theological themes, and notes on reception history.

This balanced, comprehensive, and detailed introduction now sets the standard for any textbook aiming to represent the worldwide state of scholarship on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible. The authors provide a clear and accessible entry to critical scholarship on both biblical texts and the history and religion of Israel. This volume belongs in the libraries of all with special interest in the Old Testament, from advanced students to senior scholars.

T&T Clark Handbook to Social Identity in the New Testament

  • Editors: J. Brian Tucker and Coleman A. Baker
  • Series: T&T Clark Handbooks
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 680

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Combining the insights of many leading New Testament scholars writing on the use of social identity theory this new reference work provides a comprehensive handbook to the construction of social identity in the New Testament. Part one examines key methodological issues and the ways in which scholars have viewed and studied social identity, including different theoretical approaches, and core areas or topics which may be used in the study of social identity, such as food, social memory, and ancient media culture.

Part two presents worked examples and in-depth textual studies covering core passages from each of the New Testament books, as they relate to the construction of social identity. Adopting a case-study approach, in line with sociological methods the volume builds a picture of how identity was structured in the earliest Christ-movement. Contributors include; Philip Esler, Warren Carter, Paul Middleton, Rafael Rodriquez, and Robert Brawley.

The application of identity theory to biblical studies is no passing fad, for identity lies at the heart of what the Bible is about. Anyone interested in identity and the Bible will find that this handbook presents both explanations of method in applying identity theory to Scripture and textual studies dealing with most of the New Testament documents. The authors of these helpful essays are some of the most important people currently writing on identity. The editors are to be congratulated for making such a fine handbook available
