The infancy narratives represent some of the most beautiful and intriguing passages in the Gospels.
The stories they relate are also arguably the most well-known in the Christian tradition, from the child in the manager to the Magi paying homage to the infant Jesus.
However there have been relatively few attempts to consider the stories of the Nativity from modern academic perspectives, examining them from feminist perspectives, political standpoints, in cinematic representations as well as more standard but up-to-date academic approaches.
New "Perspectives on the Nativity" attempts to redress this providing a fresh insights on these crucial Christian texts from a cast of distinguished contributors.
