Product Description


This is a beautifully presented and extremely useful contribution to our understanding of the infancy gospel tradition. (Simon J Gathercole, Journal for the Study of the New Testament 31.5)

Abraham Terian's translation is mellifluous, and his commentary elaborate, reflecting wide study and knowledge. All libraries with a substantial ecclesiastical collection will need this book. (John A. C. Greppin, Times Literary Supplement)
