Item description for Exploring the Origins of the Bible: Canon Formation in Historical, Literary, and Theological Perspective (Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology) by Craig A. Evans, Emanuel Tov & Craig Evans...

Overview
For those who want to go deeper in their understanding of the canon of Scripture, leading international scholars provide cutting-edge perspectives on various facets of the biblical writings, how those writings became canonical Scripture, and why canon matters. Craig Evans begins with an explanation of the different versions of the Hebrew Bible (Masoretic Text, Septuagint, Targum, Vulgate, etc.) as well as the books of the Apocrypha and the Pseudepigrapha, for those new to the field. Then Septuagint and Dead Sea Scrolls expert Emanuel Tov delves into the complexities of biblical writing and the importance of the Septuagint in biblical studies. James H. Charlesworth of Princeton Theological Seminary explains "canon" and the development of canons in various Jewish and Christian communities. Stephen Dempster addresses the much-debated tripartite canon of the Hebrew Scriptures. Glenn Wooden explores the role of the Septuagint in the formation of biblical canons. Craig Evans critically investigates the usefulness of extracanonical Gospels for historical Jesus research. Stanley Porter explores the relationship of Paul to the process of canonization. Lee McDonald raises the question of authority. And bringing the discussion to an interesting conclusion, Jonathan Wilson addresses the theological implications of canon. The result is a thought-provoking book that concludes with discussion of an issue at the fore today-the theological implications of canon.

Publishers Description
How did the Bible we have come to be? What do biblical scholars mean when they talk about canon, the Septuagint, the Apocrypha, or the Masoretic Text? All this biblical study is interesting, but does it really matter? Leading international scholars explain that it does. This thought-provoking and cutting-edge collection will help you go deeper in your understanding of the biblical writings, how those writings became canonical Scripture, and why canon matters. Beginning with an explanation of the different versions of the Hebrew Bible, scholars in different areas of expertise explore the complexities and issues related to the Old and New Testament canons, why different Jewish and Christian communities have different collections, and the importance of canon to theology.
