Product Description

Comprehensive and accessible, Formation of the Bible: The Story of the Church's Canon is a succinct but detailed account of how the books of the Christian Bible were chosen.

Carefully documented and written in sterling prose, Lee Martin McDonald uses a lifetime of scholarship to tell one of history's most remarkable stories--the story of the Judeo-Christian Bible. From the ancient texts of the Pentateuch, to the development of the LXX, to the Dead Sea Scrolls, to the Gospels and the rest of the New Testament, McDonald's work educates, enriches, and edifies. Highly recommended.

Publisher's Description

Well-known for his scholarly works on the formation of the biblical canon, Lee McDonald has written a carefully researched and reasoned explanation on the history of the formation of the Bible expressly for the interested pastor and curious layman.

Combining a lifelong commitment to the Scriptures, both as a pastor and as a scholar, McDonald approaches his task with sensitivity to the importance of these sacred texts as well as with the thoughtful practice of a person steeped in the process by which these texts were brought together to form the Bible as the church knows it now. From the collection (and translations) of the Hebrew Scriptures through the collection of the New Testament Scriptures, and finally the process of settling on the final forms for these collections, McDonald leads his reader right up to the present moment.
