Overview

Carefully researched and compellingly reasoned, this explanation of the history of the Chruch's canon illuminates the origin of the Scriptures for today's church. From the collection of the Hebrew Scriptures to the gathering of the New Testament letters, the story of how the Bible came to be is carried forward by McDonald's wealth of expertise and keen scholarship.

Christians may well ask why we need to spend any time on the origin of the Bible; wouldn't it be better simply to read and use it to advance the mission of the church? What difference does a background study make now, and why are we focusing on the Bible of the early churches?

… However, if the Bible conveys the World of God and clarifies to us who God is, what the will of God is for us, who we are as the people of God, and what our mission in this world is, then the question cannot be unimportant for Christian faith. –From the Preface
