Reviews - What do customers think about The Biblical Canon: Its Origin, Transmission, And Authority?
Liberal Perspective Nov 25, 2008
McDonald does not believe in biblical inerrancy, therefore the basis of his approach is from the broader scope of all who claimed to be Jewish or Christian, not just those who followed the orthodox tenants of Christianity. For those seeking a broad understanding of the genre and culture of those early centuries, McDonald has done a solid job of giving it. However, his work, by denying the supernatural involvement of the Holy Spirit in the canon's formation, will not prove helpful to the majority of evangelical students of the biblical canon.
