As part of National Library Week, the DePaul Library celebrates Dr. Naomi Steinberg's new book, The World of the Child in the Hebrew Bible (Sheffield Phoenix Press, 2013). Please join Dr. Steinberg, Associate Professor in DePaul's Department of Religious Studies, for an author reading and discussion of the book followed by a reception.
Sheffield Phoenix Press describes The World of the Child in the Hebrew Bible as a "fascinating study, in which the author draws fruitfully on her personal cross-cultural experience of children’s lives in Guatemala" as it draws a variety of historical evidence and contemporary studies as it examines "the reality that childhood in the Hebrew Bible was radically different from present-day childhood."
When: Tuesday April 16, 11:30-1:00 PM
Where: John T. Richardson Library, Room 115 (near the Kenmore entrance of Kelly Hall)
