This book presents a collection of case studies of biblical
retellings in various contexts. Every section starts with an
introduction presenting a brief overview of the field, the issues
treated, as well as the nature and directions of contemporary
scholarly discourse. After a detailed general introduction defining
the Bible itself and the concept of retelling, the notion of
Apocrypha is readdressed, particularly analyzing the way they are
composed. Then follow the sections Translation and Interpretation
from Jerome to the Post-Holocaust period, Preaching and Teaching
the Bible in the Middle Ages through the Enlightenment, Biblical
Characters as Models in medieval hagiography, Biblical Poetry from
Late Antiquity to Bruce Springsteen, and finally the retelling
strategies and challenges of Children's Bibles and a brief
treatment of retelling Beyond the Text.
