The Canon Debate

Product Details


"This volume comprises chapters written by more than thirty scholars who discuss a wide variety of historical and methodological topics bearing on the development of the canon of both testaments. Encyclopedic in scope, the book will long remain indispensable in assessing the evidence as well as many hypotheses past and present on the origin and formation of the Bible."--Bruce M. Metzger, Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary"This collection of essays is without doubt the most comprehensive treatment ever published of canon formation in Judaism and Christianity. The most strikingly innovative aspect of the volume is the inclusion of both Testaments. Each is illuminated by juxtaposition with the other. The treatment of each Testament is exceptionally thorough. The subject is approached not only through study of the material that was included, but also through that which was excluded---the Jewish and Christian Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha. This exemplary historical overview should be a prerequisite for all future discussion of the canon in biblical theology."--John J. Collins, Holmes Professor of Old Testament, Yale University
