Paperback - 95 pp
This careful evaluation of the 'problem of the New Testament canon'
engages historical, literary, and theological questions often not
raised by the general reader. How did this collection of
writings come into being? What assumptions and intentions
contributed to its formation? Who or what determined its
contents? On what basis did special authority come to be
attached to these writings? How does the character of this
collection bear upon its interpretation? In what ways does
this collection claim or exercise religious authority? After
grappling with these basic questions, Gamble concludes: 'The history
of the canon indicates clearly enough that the contents of the New
Testament were determined by the church on the basis of tradition .
. .one cannot have scripture without also having tradition.'
