Publisher's Description

Standard accounts of canon reduce it to scripture and treat scripture as a criterion of truth. Scripture is then related in positive or negative ways to tradition, reason, and experience. Such projects mistakenly locate the canonical heritage of the church within epistemology, and Abraham charts the fatal consequences of this move, from the Fathers to modern feminist theology.

Author Bio

William J. Abraham teaches philosophy and theology at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, where he is Albert Cook Outler Professor of Wesley Studies

Editorial Reviews

"While this book is aimed primarily at his fellow philosophers and theologians, it deserves a wider readership as well. It is elegantly written and marked by numerous memorable lines and striking turns of phrase."--Theology Today

"This is an unusually ambitious book ... a considerable achievement. It raises important issues, and affords many valuable insights in the course of its historical reflections."--Maurice Wiles, Journal of Theological Studies

"Every issue and thinker is expounded clearly and concisely, with attention always drawn to strengths as well as weaknesses. To this non-specialist the argument was always accessible and regularly persuasive."--The Expository Times
