Book on Jesus'
Youth Due Sept. 15
Clair Huchet Bishop, one of
America's best-known writers of
children's books, is the author of
"Yeshu, Called Jesus," a recon-
struction of the childhood of Jesus
with special emphasis on his Jew-
ish heritage. This book, for ages
10-14, called "truly ecumenical" by
the publishers, will be issued by
Farrar, Strauss & Giroux under
the Bell Book imprint on Sept. 15.
Basing her book on Scripture
and on what is known of first-cen-
tury Jewish life, Mrs. Bishop has
had the help and approval of
Jewish, Catholic and Protestant
clergymen in preparing her text,
as well as the special guidance of
a Jewish scholar, to ensure the
authenticity of the religious ma-
terial. The scriptural quotations
are taken from the Masoretic
text, the King James and Confra-
ternity editions, the New Testa-
ment translation by Ronald Knox,
and the Bible de Jerusalem in
the author's translation from the
LIVONIA JEWISH CONG.
