Children's Bibles have been among the most popular and influential types of religious publications in the United States, providing many Americans with their first formative experiences of the Bible and its stories. In Children's Bibles in America, Russell W. Dalton explores the variety of ways in which children's Bibles have adapted, illustrated, and retold Bible stories for children throughout U.S. history. This reception history of the story of Noah as it appears in children's Bibles provides striking examples of the multivalence and malleability of biblical texts, and offers intriguing snapshots of American culture and American religion in their most basic forms. Dalton demonstrates the ways in which children's Bibles reflect and reveal America's diverse and changing beliefs about God, childhood, morality, and what must be passed on to the next generation. Dalton uses the popular story of Noah's ark as a case study, exploring how it has been adapted and appropriated to serve in a variety of social agendas. Throughout America's history, the image of God in children's Bible adaptations of the story of Noah has ranged from that of a powerful, angry God who might destroy children at any time to that of a friendly God who will always keep children safe. At the same time, Noah has been lifted up as a model of virtues ranging from hard work and humble obedience to patience and positive thinking. Dalton explores these uses of the story of Noah and more as he engages the fields of biblical studies, the history of religion in America, religious education, childhood studies, and children's literature.

Although women constitute half of the Jewish population and have always played essential roles in ensuring Jewish continuity and the preservation of Jewish beliefs and values, only recently have their contributions and achievements received sustained scholarly attention. Scholars have begun to investigate Jewish women’s domestic, economic, intellectual, spiritual, and creative roles in Jewish life from biblical times to the present. Yet little of this important work has filtered down beyond specialists in their respective academic fields. Women and Judaism brings the broad new insights they have uncovered to the world. Women and Judaism communicates this research to a wider public of students and educated readers outside of the academy by presenting accessible and engaging chapters written by key senior scholars that introduce the reader to different aspects of women and Judaism. The contributors discuss feminist approaches to Jewish law and Torah study, the spirituality of Eastern European Jewish women, Jewish women in American literature, and many other issues. Contributors: Nehama Aschkenasy, Judith R. Baskin, Sylvia Barack Fishman, Harriet Pass Freidenreich, Esther Fuchs, Judith Hauptman, Sara R. Horowitz, Renée Levine, Pamela S. Nadell, and Dvora Weisberg.

'Noah: The Oral Tradition Retold' is the story of Noah, his wife Naamah, and his three sons Shem, Ham and Japheth in the time of the Biblical flood. The story begins with Noah being suddenly commanded by God to build an ark because a forty day and forty night rain is coming which will flood the earth. What follows is a comical fiasco presented in dialogue between Noah, his family and neighbors who think he is crazy as he builds a giant boat on dry land. As the story continues, it humorously follows the story of the great flood, eventually arriving at the conclusion that only Christians and Jews would believe the story of Noah's Ark. 'Noah: The Oral Tradition Retold' is presented in the same vein of Christian comedy stage play literature as The Cotton Patch Gospel of Matthew & John by Clarence Jordan and Smoke On The Mountain by Connie Ray. Its light-hearted style and off-the-cuff whimsy make it an easy and enjoyable read. The book would appeal to anyone who enjoys humorous approaches to Biblical stories... and who doesn't enjoy a great Bible story and a good laugh? You'll find them both right here, in abundance, with 'Noah: The Oral Tradition Retold'!
