    William Webster is an apologist and a scholar. He lays out a powerful and extremely well documented case for the 39 book Old Testament canon. He references overwhelming evidence to support the premise that while the use of the apocrypha was considered beneficial for personal reading, the apocrypha were not accepted as part of the official canon and were assigned secondary status even by the Roman Catholic Church until the Council of Trent. This is an excellent book if you want the background for the O.T. canon.

    Theres a difference between the vision of an apologist and the vision of protestant scholars. Thats for sure. The author gives some partial truths. 1) Just read the "Dictionary of New Testament Background", the article "Hebrew Bible" and you will see that the OT of Jesus time wasnt the 39 protestant OT. 2) Read the OT debate, the article about the Dead Sea Scrolls and well see that the Essenes didnt have a protestant canon 2)Jerome and Athanasius quoted the so called apocrypha as inspired books. 3)Lets remember that the Trent biblical canon wasnt only and OT List, but it covered the whole Bible and the reason is clear: Luther among other protestants gave a broken Bible: an OT canon of 39 books and a NT canon of 23. 4) There are protestant scholars that rejected the 39 book canon of the OT. Names? James Barr, Oxford Profesor of OT Interpretation. Read Albert Sundberg "Old Testament of the Early Church" published by Harvard University. Sundberg is a protestant. The OT canon of 39 books wasnt the Early church canon.
