Reviews - What do customers think about The New Testament Canon: Its Making and Meaning?
Fine Scholarly Work on the Canon Jun 27, 2007
This is a profoundly intelligent and well reasoned investigation of the establishment of the New Testament canon. As Dan O. Via says in the Editor's Forward, this "is a historical analysis of a fundamentally theological problem." The author himself says, "The purpose of this volume is to assess the NT as canon and thus to comprehend the fundamental form of the NT itself." Though the book might prove demanding for mainstream readers, I think it is well worth the effort. I've found it deeply engaging. Also rank and file Christians aren't being served that well by easy popular books on the origins of the Christian bible. These "popular" books are often shallow and full of misinformation. Gamble is great scholar. His "Books and Readers in the Early Church" is greatly respected. I also recommend "The First Edition of the New Testament" by David Trobisch. --- firstname.lastname@example.org.
