Description
Summary:"Growing Up in Ancient Israel uses a child-centered methodology to investigate the world of children in ancient Israel. Where sources from ancient Israel are lacking, the book turns to cross-cultural materials from the ancient Near East as well as anthropological and ethnographic sources. Acknowledging that childhood is both biologically determined and culturally constructed, the book explores conception, birth, infancy, dangers in childhood, the growing child, play, dress, and death. To bridge the gap between the ancient world and today's world, Kristine Henriksen Garroway brings in examples from contemporary society to illustrate that the Hebrew Bible informs a Western understanding of children and childhood" --
