Just below the surface of any Christian view of the Bible is the knotty issue of the biblical canon. How and when was it decided which books would make up the Bible? What makes a book canonical? In this volume, respected Old Testament scholar Christopher Seitz helps readers understand how the Old Testament fits into the canon's development. Brief and readable yet substantive, this volume challenges current understandings of the formation of the Christian canon, utilizing the latest research on the biblical prophets. Seitz reveals canonical connections woven into the fabric of the Prophetic Books and argues that the Law and the Prophets cohere and give shape to the subsequent Christian canon.
Christopher R. Seitz (Ph.D., Yale University) is professor of biblical interpretation at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto, in Toronto, Ontario. He previously taught at the University of St. Andrews and Yale University. He is the author or editor of twelve books including Figured Out: Typology, Providence and Christian Scripture; Nicene Christianity The Future for a New Ecumenism; Goodly Fellowship of the Prophets, The: The Achievement of Association in Canon Formation; Isaiah 1-39 (Interpretation Bible Commentaries) and most recently Colossians (Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible).
