For more than five centuries, parents, teachers and preachers in Europe and America have written and illustrated Bibles especially for children. These children's Bibles vary widely, featuring different stories, various interpretations, and markedly divergent illustrations, despite their common source. How children's Bibles differ, and why, it the subject of this book, recognizing children's Bibles as a distinct genre with its own literary, historical and cultural significance.
