How Children Read Biblical Narrative
An Investigation of Children’s Readings of the Gospel of Luke
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"A genuinely interdisciplinary study which offers important insights into the interpretive strategies of children and young people reading the Bible."
--Louise Lawrence, Senior Lecturer in New Testament Studies, University of Exeter
"Educational resources on the Bible for children abound, but there is almost no research on how children actually read the Bible. In this pioneering book Briggs, an expert in both children's literature and biblical studies, provides a rigorous model for researching children's readings. Refreshingly honest about the difficulties and rewards of this work, she succeeds in making us rethink why we want children to read the Bible and how we read it ourselves."
--Hugh S. Pyper, Professor of Biblical Interpretation, University of Sheffield
