Canon Revisited: Establishing the Origins and Authority of the New Testament Books

Canon Revisited: Establishing the Origins and Authority of the New Testament Books

$32.99

Hardback

This study of the New Testament canon and its authority looks deeper than the traditional surveys of councils and creeds, mining the biblical text itself for direction in understanding what the original authors and audiences believed the canon to be. Canon Revisited distinguishes itself by placing a substantial focus on the theology of canon as the context within which the historical evidence is evaluated and assessed. In effect, this work successfully unites both the theology and the historical development of the canon, ultimately serving as a practical defense for the authority of the New Testament books.

Do we have reason to believe we have the right New Testament?
5 stars By Hoa, Aug 05 2016
Do we have sufficient reason to believe we have the right books in our New Testament? Most books answer this question by looking at the history of the New Testament canon. Kruger, however, takes us to the foundation for this belief. He shows how the three strands of evidence - divine qualities, corporate reception and apostolicity are both Biblical and by the testimony of the Spirit give the Christian sufficient knowledge of the New Testament canon. This is not a light-read, but a thorough and enlightening presentation of the canon that fills a gap many popular works leave. Highly recommended.
