Following in the footsteps of Brevard Childs who passed away in 2007, Christopher R. Seitz presents us with the story of how the books we know as the "Prophets" came into existence. Following Childs' "canon" model Seitz in The Goodly Fellowship of the Prophets explores the origins, arrangement, and the "achievement of association" in the prophetical books we have received today. Concise and informative this book does a great job of introducing its reader to the canon of the prophets.
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.
